When there is no @ symbol, “mtl-licserver” is interpreted as a file path, not as the name of a computer. Softimage 7.5 used this syntax to specify that the file C:\Softimage\Softimage_7.5_x64\adlm\licenses\Autodesk.lic contained the location of the license server.
Here’s the actual FLEXLM_DIAGNOSTIC message. Notice how it lists “Filename” and “License path”, which indicate that Softimage is trying to find a file.
