I recently purchased an Ocelot, an IR-100, and 4 IR-E1 flashers. I have never used any of these before, but I am looking forward to playing with them. There are no instructions about how to connect the IR-100 to the Ocelot. I assume that you connect the IR Emitter port on the Ocelot to the GND and SIG terminals on the IR-100 so that the tip on the Ocelot side connects to SIG and the outer ring on the Ocelot side connects to GND. Can someone verify this? Thanks.

The Buffalo IR-100 expects a positive going signal between 9 and 12 volts. The Ocelot only puts out a 5 volt signal. It might work (but give a weak signal) but it would be best to amplify the level of the Ocelot to match the IR-100. Look at this thread, showing a circuit that is used to do the same thing for a Xantech connecting block:
