Hello Justin Sir,

Thanks for your reply.
I changed the dt value as per the suggestion.
But after 200 steps the same kind of warnings came  like "pressure scaling
more than 1%" and "1-4 interactions" and then it stopped after writing few
pdb files. Then I decreased the dt value still lesser (0.00001) and this
time it continued with all the given steps but the lipids' structure were
distorted into small fragments.
The other query I have is what should the optimal value for these parameters
for membrane proteins :  rlist, rcoulomb, and rvdw. I have used the value of
1 before.
One last question is how to overcome the lincs warnings in position
restraint mdrun.
Thanks in advance.

Thanking you,
