Thanks to both responders. I lied a little bit. I was initially using a longer 16 ft ttl Nikon compatible cord from FlashZebra. But I did then try the shorter coiled Nikon ttl cord with similar results. I agree with all conclusions. It cannot be done with Nikon.

I went back to review Syl Arena's video on Kelbytrainning.com He clearly can control the distant cable-connected Canon flash from his Canon camera. I can do almost the same. The distant cable connected Master SB-900 will work, but I need to go over the the flash to set the various groups to flash method and power level if using Manual. I cannot do it at the camera. The advantage to his methods could be see when shooting outside and it difficult to point the Master at several slaves located around the subject. Inside various walls usually send the CLS signal about everywhere, and triggering all flashes is easier.

One point for Canon!
