Launch Center locks with VPN

I've just upgraded our office from FileMaker 12 to 16.  I have some issues with the Launch Center the most critical is that it simply locks after about a quarter of a revolution of the spinner when coming in via VPN.  Without it I can't open any databases.

 

It works for all of us fine in the office and when I first came home I was able to open one of our databases via the open recent command but not the one I need the most.  That one had been reloaded to the server shortly before I left the office.  I am able to log into other workstation in the office via ARD and Launch Centre launches it fine from there.  Thinking this was a local problem I trashed the com.filemaker.client plist file but to no avail.  Of course this also cleared my Open Recent list as well.  Also the files which still exist on our FileMaker 12 server are available as they always have been.

 

Is there something that I need to do to make this FileMaker 16 Launch Center work over the VPN?
