No, an SB-600 cannot trigger another SB-600 in CLS. The SB-600 is slave-only and has no commander capability, like the SU-800, and no SU-4 "dumb" optical slave mode that doesn't require a commander unit. And I gather that the ring flash keeps you from using the D7000's pop-up as a CLS commander? If I replaced the SB-600 on camera with a Yongnuo YN568EX ...
