Hi Chaitanya,

Thank you for your reply. Do you also have experience with EDEM? I am trying to couple EDEM and Fluent through a windows batch file and nested journal files. EDEM must be connected to Fluent through a coupling server. The connection must be from EDEM side, and the syntax for starting the EDEM with connection to Fluent is 

 edem -c -i .dem --cs

when this is run, there will appear the message "Awaiting client connection"

it seems that I should start Fluent before this line so that Fluent gets ready to connect to the EDEM server. Do you have any idea on this?
