Why would you choose "None?" It would seem that you do not, in fact, have
capping groups. If atom 1 is the N of THR, then there is no ACE cap before it...

These messages generally indicate missing atoms. Investigate what they are and
why these errors are coming up.

This warning comes from the fact that you are telling pdb2gmx to look for
capping groups in order to find improper dihedrals, and it appears no such

There is a reason the pdb2gmx help information calls the -missing option

Find out which atoms are missing (if any) to fix the "long bonds" problem, then
don't specify "None" as your termini unless you really have acetyl and amide caps.

As I am running a membrane-protein simulation, I would like to know the command which I am using is correct or not.
