cactus v6 and pentax k-3II

My idea was to trigger Pentax AF360FGZ remotely from Pentax K-3II. So, I got Cactus v6. My assumption is that setup Cactus v6 on hotshoe of the camera and it can trigger the flash remotely. Am I right in my assumption? I ask because I could not get it to work. I have setup Catctus v6 in Tx mode, AF360Ggz in slave mode 2. When I clicked the test button on cactus v6 flash is not triggered. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

You need two v6 for this. If you use the RF60, then you only need a transmitter. But for Pentax flash, you need to have two v6: one for the hotshoe and one for the flash.
