D300 / SB800 sync cord...

I called Nikon but figured I'd ask here.  I have an SB 800 flash that I'm trying to use with the sync port via a cord instead of the creative lighting system but its not firing.  Is there anything special you have to do?  My flash is not set up in "remote" mode as is required for the creative lighting system.  I just have the cord which is a standard PC cord 16 feet long between the camera and the flash.  Shouldn't it just fire away?  Anyone have any tips, would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Seann
