33220A software trigger

Hi,
I am using 33220A signal generator. I want to start a waveform simultaneously at 2 different signal generators. To do this, I first create a waveform and upload it, activate burst mode, set cycle number to infinity and adjust other parameters for both devices. I am doing all of these with PyVisa library. After that, I set one device to BUS trigger mode and other to EXT trigger mode. I also connected 10 MHz out of one device to 10 MHz in of other device along with trigger ports. However, when I trigger first device with BUS trigger command, second one is not triggered infinitely. I suspect that BUS trigger does not generate required trigger waveform. I would be pleased if you can help me clarifying this issue.
Best regards
