FrameMaker X can ONLY be activated over the internet

Our company has just purchased several copies of FrameMaker X only to discover that it can *only* be activated over the internet.
Workstations on our classified networks cannot connect to the internet. This is mandated by the Dept of Defence.
Our System Administrator called Adobe support and was told that there was no way around this and we won't be able to use their product.
It is hard to believe that they don't have an override key for activation, because Defence are major users of FrameMaker.
How many of you will be in the same boat? Our company uses Adobe Acrobat Professional, RoboHelp and InDesign as well as FrameMaker, and I wonder if the future upgrade path will be blocked in the same way.
