Thanks for your replay. Actually I'm wondering how to creat the ".off" file of the equilibriumed solvent box based on the obtained .rst or .mdcrd file. I can extract the PDB file of the final solvent box, but it cann't be loader correctly by the xleap when using the gaff force filed, as the atom types in the obtained PDB file is not the same with those used in the gaff force field.
