Dear Kiana,
Are you sure that there is supposed to be a 'FEJO-SJO-FEJO-SJO' dihedral
term? It does not appear in the parameter file, and it looks like the
topology likewise does not define Fe-S-Fe-S dihedrals, so I suspect that
you want to AVOID using automatic dihedral generation for this chain. Using
AUTO DIHE will generate all possible dihedrals for atoms with the
appropriate bonding pattern, but it looks like such dihedrals are not
intended in this force field for the iron-sulfur cluster.
