iRule to Indigo

I've read the on-line user guide for the Cynic Cache' plugin product and cannot figure out how to successfully get Insteon codes out of iRule and into Indigo. I have an iTach IP2IR device with one port configured as a "Sensor In" port. I'd like to send from iRule to that port directly and have it heard by Indigo. Do I have the correct iTach product to do this? If so, is there a simplified setup description that I can check on the iRule and Indigo side of the equation?

If you're trying to send IR symbols from Indigo, then the IP2IR is the right device, and you want to plug into that either a "bug" stuck on a particular device, or a "blaster" to fill a room with IR.

I'm afraid the "sensor in" feature is for reading dry contact digital signals; it is not for reading IR signals. (The IP2IR has an IR "learning" feature, but that can't really be used to "listen" to a room for IR symbols.)

If you're trying to recognize IR symbols sent by some other device (iRule or any other), then you need a GC-IRL (or GC-IRE) device plugged into a serial port, and the IP2IR won't do you any good. GC-IRL isn't an iTach product, though it could be plugged into an IP2SL if you're out of serial ports.
