I haven't done it myself, but both of these methods appear as if they  
could be implemented out of the box in gromacs.

I'm applying COM pull on a two-domain protein by fixing the distance between
the centers of mass of each domain with an umbrella potential. However, I
find that the domains can rotate so that the inner surfaces of each domain
are not parallel any more. How can I apply a rotational restraint so that
each domain doesn't rotate during simulation? Thanks in advance.
