Did you properly account for the shifting function

(http://www.ks.uiuc.edu/Research/namd/2.6/ug/node24.html#SECTION00081200000000000000)

in your manual calculation? N.b. unlike the vdw interaction, if you have

PME off the electrostatic energies/forces will be affected at all

distances, not just past the switching distance.

Best,

Peter
