Hi George,
In that case (protein is not in the CASTp database), you have to go to the CASTp web server yourself:


...to request the new calculation and specify that the results should be e-mailed back to you. 

Then after you get the e-mail with results attached and put them on your own computer, you can use Chimera to view them.

For more about the results files and and how to open them in Chimera, see:

I hope this helps,
