Flash trigger Canon vs Sony. Why does it not work on Sony?

Hello,

I'm a pro photographer Canon shooter (80D)  switching to Sony a6400. 
To trigger my light boxes (Bowen) I simply use the flash on the camera ("flash detect" on the Bowens). 
It's always worked fine with Canon but with a6400, although both flashes trigger (on camera and on the boxe), I don't see it in my image. 
This is most likely due to a pre flash on the Sony... but I can't find how to adjust to the right setting.

Can you help? Many thanks in advance. 
(I tried Slow flash and Rear Curtain)

Mode: Manual. 160th / 5.6 / Forced flash / Red eye reduction off

Canon. 1/160th. 5.6

Sony. 1/160th. 5.6
