This means you want LYN to have three connections as CYX as three connections.

- Load leaprc.ff99 or leaprc.ff99SB in LEap

- Check for the CYX residue involved in a disulfide bridge:
desc CYX
desc CYX.1

- Apply the same rule for LYN; i.e. define three atoms as connect0,
connect1 & connect2.

This means you will have to create a new LYN residue i.e. a new LYN
fragment. You can use R.E.D. for that.
