Please excuse a belated reply. Yes, we do support parallel Geant4.

It works very well as long as one has stable connections. We are planning to announce in the next few weeks a newer version of TOP-C ( http://www.ccs.neu.edu/home/gene/topc.html ), on which the parallelization is built. The newer version will also handle the case when connections are dropped, by reassigning any dropped tasks to a different processor. This is important for long-running computations in a time-frame where connections might be dropped.

If you are interested in trying out the newer version, we would
be pleased to get feedback on its ease of use.  This is an important
design goal for us.
                                               Best wishes,
                                               - Gene Cooperman
