Default rear sync or second curtain

My flash is the 430 EX Speedlight, my camera is a 5D Mark ii.

I'm trying to figure out how to do a rear sync flash.

Does anyone have step by step instructions? I'm told this is easy to do.
Yeah, right. Calculus is easy if you're a rocket scientist. I think easy is a matter of perspective.

Faithfully Frustrated,

It's easy just press (twice) the button with the flash H/>>> well that's as close as I can show typing, but you will see the one.

Third from the left on this photo http://www.ingirogiro.org/images/varie/canon_430ex.jpg

You will get the >>> symbol and you are ready to go.

Hope that helps.

Are you telling me there is no setting I need to mess around with on the camera itself? That's the one I've been looking to change.

Exactly, just do it on the flash.
