If you know that that plug-in works fine for your needs, you could run it on your server as a "robot". Install a local copy of FileMaker on the server, open it, and connect to your database through the Remote...as if you were on a client workstation. You can set things to run on a timer or schedule as well.
Also depends on what kind of data you need to sync. We've done projects with custom WordPress data types...like a membership directory for example. We connect to the WordPress MySQL database on the backend via ESS and do syncing through scripts.
Hmmm. I thought that for a plugin to run on the Server it had to specifically programmed to do so. That usually involves a different license fee in my experience.

Thanks for your answers.
I think that I will try to use the plugin on the clients and see if it fits our needs.
I'd rather avoid to sync the databases as it requires a lot of work...
In this case the plug-in could be running on the server...but it would be acting as a client running on the server. The server is just acting as a dedicated robot workstation. It could be any workstation...but the server works just as well. Running a server-based plug-in that is individually accessible to all clients would be something different.
