Thank you for the response. However, I think I've tried just that and no luck. Have you actually done this and/or what might I be doing wrong?

I’ve done this using the XVario and other cameras with built in flash to trigger profoto and Hansel  strobes. The thing is that this technique is so simple and it has nothing to do with the camera but rather with the external flash or strobe being used as slave. It should fire when it detects the flashlight generated by the flash on the camera. If this is not working with you then it must be a flash issue “your Metz” or that the distance or angle between your camera flash and Metz is not appropriate!
