Here's what i use to turn off the the firewall for domain, but leave it on for private and public networks.

Obviously it can be used to turn them all off if needed.

netsh advfirewall set domainprofile state off
netsh advfirewall set privateprofile state on
netsh advfirewall set publicprofile state on

Hope this helps

Is there a registry string for this as well?
