How to rewire cubase 8 as slave into live 9?

I have W7 64 bit. Live 9 Standard as a rewire slave to cubase 8 works fine. However, I am not able to rewire cubase 8 in slave mode to live 9. I followed the operation manual and searched for answers in the Help section. Starting live 9 first and starting cubase 8 next does not put live 9 into a mastermode. I cannot find CB 8 in the I/O section of midi as well as audio tracks. Also there is no synchronisation.

Can anyone be so kind to help me getting this right please.

    I have been searching the internet also. I cannot find any information on Cubase Artist 8 rewired as a Slave into Live 9 Standard. I also searched the Steinberg forum in vain. As stated in my question, when I want to do this both DAW's function independly from each other. There is no synchronisation or automatic rewire mode from ableton. It seems an impossible rewiring option to my opinion. Can this be true???

    All information I can get hold on is only about rewiring Live as a Slave into Cubase. It seems to me that Cubase is more dominant than Live 9. Like the bigger DAW versus the smaller DAW. When Steinberg is whistling Ableton sit on it hindlegs begging for a cooky. What a strange fenomenon is this.

    Unfortunately Cubase insists on being the master in  a Rewire setup with Live, so you can't use it as a Rewire slave in this case. The same applies to Logic and Protools by the way.

    It did shed some light on how to read and interpret the Live manual. THX for the answer.

    As a good starting point beyond our manual I would also recommend our help section, or this article in particular when it comes to Rewire:

    Hi there, is there any chance to sync Cubase 8 and Ableton Live 9 suite, with Push, by midiclock? I "only" need they start together when play is pressed on Cubase.....

    Thanks

    Hi

    I am happy to have Ableton slave to Cubase but how can I use PUSH 2 wiht Ableton as slave? Seem like PUSH doesn't work that way.
