You're importing a file containing updated profiles into ARCS. After selecting the desired file from the filesystem, you click Import, but the filename disappears, and you see an error: "A value is required". The behavior is observed in Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Mozilla Firefox. An error is observed in the AccountReconciliation.log:

"[2017-06-28T00:18:25.601+00:00] [EPMServer0] [ERROR] [] [oracle.apps.epm.arm.ui] [tid: 95] [userId: <anonymous>] [ecid: 6ab737d355edf9e5:1d216cd4:15cea823ea8:-8000-0000000000000550,0] [APP: ACCOUNTRECONCILIATION#] [SRC_CLASS: oracle.apps.epm.fcm.common.ui.bean.common.CommonDialogBean] [SRC_METHOD: invokeErrorMessagebox] java.lang.NullPointerException[[
at oracle.apps.epm.fcm.common.ui.core.common.utils.CommonUtils.writeInputStreamToOutputStream(CommonUtils.java:443)..."

The issue only occurs when you are at the office. From a remote site, the import process completes successfully.
