Right now it seems everything is working and going through the edge routerx. I dont notice anything being blocked.
I'm trying to block it all down since this is a NVR and just want to allow notifictions to be sent out.
the NVR is IP of 192.168.5.27 and its a windows VM
There's the problem - you are on the Unifi forum which covers the Unifi Security Gateway. EdgeMAX products are on the EdgeMAX forum.
