Fast Help Needed work with strobes and 5dII

Hi all,

First post in this forum.  I'm in urgent need of help regarding working with strobes.  The situation is basically I need some product shots.  I normally farm this out but that didn't come through and I have to get my shots online for a test.

I bought a 2 strobe kit from Dodd camera... looks like a nice rig

I have everything set up and ready to go but my stobes will not fire.

Here is my set up

5dII in manual mode, shooting using the on screen computer controls

I set teh white balance to flash

I connected the sync cord from the flash connection on teh side of the camera to one of the stobes and the other strobe gets fired remotely.  I do not have a hot shoe flash connected.

No flash, when fired

am I missing a setting to turn on that remote connection?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
