Dear all:

for the following problem I couldn't yet find an answer on the list:

Starting a parallel job (gromacs 3.2.1., fftw 2.1.5) on a Gigabit 
network (Opterons, Redhat:-(, mpich, 64bit installation:-() I 
get a "Connection refused" error. All mpich-tests work fine, the problem 
only appears when using gromacs, independent of the number of processors.  
Any ideas?
