Flashpoint 1220M with Phottix Ares wireless triggers?

I am completely new to using monolight strobes. I have just finished setting things up for a first-time test. I confirmed that the monolight goes off when I press the Test button, so that's good. I have the Phottix Ares trigger set up. I have confirmed that pressing the test button on the hotshoe trigger causes the power light on the receiver to flash red. However, the monolight does not flash when this happens. The receiver is connected to the monolight with a 3.5mm to 1/4" cable into the monolight's sync port.

I am wondering if these are compatible? Unfortunately the "manual" that comes with the Flashpoint 1220M is essentially a card that labels what the buttons on the back do, but doesn't really tell you how to use the device if you have never used a monolight before.
