Slow start time delay for license initialization and application launch

I work offsite for a major university running through a VPN. I'm running intel dual-core@2.8GHz with 4Gb ram, 32-bit platform. Pinging the license server gives a response time averaging around 25ms.

I'm trying to do desktop development for a stand-alone desktop application that requires license initialization and the arcmap application. My problem is that it takes 90 seconds for the license initialization and then another 2 minutes to start the arcmap application every time I change a couple of lines of code. This is too much.

Can anyone give me some advice on how to reduce the delay for license initialization start-up times. Do I need to run some diagnostics to identify the problem?
