Flash Newbie with SB-600 questions

Hello. I've been shooting for many years but only now do I have the time to start investigating flash and the various effects. I have an SB-600 unit a 7100 and a 600.

question one - I've read everything in the manuals and still cannot figure out how to get the flash to fire off camera (remote commander mode) by itself. Is that even possible? With the on camera flash up it works fine.

my second question is - can someone recommend a good softbox that I can hand hold? I have a 8x6 and would like a larger one. I also don't like to put those velcro straps on my flash, but I guess if I have to, I have to. I do have a synch cord.

thanks in advance. I did a search and got so many results I'd never be able to read them all. Thanks again.
