Hi JR,
I have installed Parallel Q-Chem 4.0 on a node with 8 cores. I can log on to the WebMO server as "webmo"; SSH to the compute node ("ssh -l keller2 computenode2.univ.edu", where keller2 is the user running the apps on that computer); run qchem using "qchem -np 2 jobname.in jobname.out", with correct output file. The computenode2 has been successfully added as remote server, with max 8 processors.
However, when I log into webmo as guest, and attempt a 2-processor job on Q-Chem (on computenode2), I get an error message from webmo saying "maximum number of processors 1".
How do I inform webmo of the multiple procs on the node?

Go to the "Interface Manager", select that compute node, and edit the "Qchem" interface. Set the max processors allowed there to 8.
