Focus Problem with Sigma Macro Lens

Nikon D5100 Will Not Focus

I'm a new user so there is probably a simple reason for this problem. My camera will not focus in Helicon Remote. No movement at all.

Focus Mode: AL-S
Release Mode: S
Switch on Lens set to "A"

It focuses fine when Remote is disconnected.
