Re: AMBER: solvation of protein using TIP3PBOX in amber 8

I used the commands
  solvatebox <protein> TIP3PBOX 8.0
  edit <protein>
  Then the edit window open showing that, the protein is not totally enclosed in the solvent shell, but the same protein is working with amber 7 having WATBOX216 solvent model.
  The situation with the commands addions
  addions <protein> Na+ 0
  edit protein
  then the edit window showing that ions are linealy placed at one side of the protein, but in amber 7, it's showing that ions are placed properly showing its proper place of neutralization.
  Thanks in advance

First, this sounds like an imaging problem: have you used the image facility
in ptraj to get your protein/water system into a familiar orientation?

If this doesn't help (or you don't understand what I am saying), please give
more details: just saying that this happens "during solvation" is not enough.
We need to know more about what you actually did in order to offer any advice.
