Question: Back to my Mac not working on 2017 MacBook Pro

I currently am running 3 Macs, my work laptop (mid 2014 15" MacBook Pro) my personal laptop (2017 15" MacBook Pro) and my server (Late 2012 Mac mini).


I have setup Back to my Mac in iCloud and checked that it is enabled on all machines. I have checked that screen sharing is enabled under the Sharing menu in System Prefs on all machine. I checked the firewall on all machines as well. My problem is that I remote in / use Back to my Mac to get into the Mac mini. I have no problem doing this from my work machine logs in almost instantly but the 2017 MacBook Pro just seems to sit in connecting for forever if it does connect I would guess that it is about 30minutes after I have attempted. Does anyone know why this would be happening?

MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2017), macOS High Sierra (10.13.4)
