Thanks for your time. Farzad by the model, are you referring to the pdb or
topology. I think my pdb is fine but I am not sure about the topology
whether I need to define some lone pairs. I tried with smaller time steps.
Still getting the same error.
Peter, I tried with turning on tip4p water model in config file and
without. Both failed. Is there a specific way that I should define the lone
