I have a Vivitar 4600 and it works fine in auto mode. I don't have a 5600, so I'm guessing it is similar. Set the camera to manual mode, shutter sync speed (180 or less) and the lens aperture to the f/stop that is displayed on the back of the Vivitar. The f/stop will vary depending on how you set up the flash.
