Please find the following compressed files:

bond_ang_opt_err.log (Error From fftk)
CH3-SOH_opt.pdb (Original PDB)
ch3oh.1.psf (Original PSF)
ch3oh.hess.chk.log (Gaussian09 Output)
ch3oh.hess.gau (Gaussian input)
CH3SOH.0.par (In-Progress parameter file)

We received this error in step 5.2 of the fftk tutorial (
when using the Guess button to populate the Parameters to Optimize.

We are not necessarily sure if this error arose from the way we calculated
in Gaussian or from a potential problem with fftk not being able to
recognize the gaussian log file correctly.

Thanks and if you need any other files please let me know.
