ADLM server for AutoCAD 2000 from remote subnet - on computer running ADLM fo

I am distributing AutoCAD 2000 to users on our network. The problem that I have is with the users that are running ADLM for their local group for AutoCAD 13. This local machine requests an autorization code for AutoCAD 2000 - instead of using my ALDM server. I have had them set the ACADSERVER variable (using the @ prefix). This occured in testing with one site (I have about 8 more like this).

Is it possible to configure the license servers this way?

AutoCAD R13 for Windows did not use AdLM, it used a
hardware lock based license management system.  If AutoCAD 2000 is asking
for an authorization code, it means AutoCAD is finding a hardware lock on the
back of that system.  Remove the lock and AutoCAD will look to the network
for a license.  You should not have to use the @ prefix on your ACADSERVER
setting and I do not recommend using it unless you have a specific
reason.
