@font-face ie problems

I have tried a few different ways to include the correct fonts in the CSS. I know that I need the eot version for the font to work on IE, but I can't get it to recognize it. I have used font squirrel to convert the fonts, and I have placed the .eot file and .otf file in a folder called "fonts" Here is my CSS:

@font-face {
font-family: BebasNeue;
src: url('fonts/BebasNeue.eot');
src: url('fonts/BebasNeue.otf') format("opentype");

So through suggestions from below, I was led to this site: http://www.fontspring.com/blog/further-hardening-of-the-bulletproof-syntax

I used the CSS:

@font-face {
font-family: 'BebasNeue';
src: url('fonts/bebasneue.eot'); /* IE9 Compat Modes */
src: url('fonts/bebasneue.eot?#iefix') format('embedded-opentype'), /* IE6-IE8 */
url('fonts/bebasneue.woff') format('woff'), /* Modern Browsers */
url('fonts/bebasneue.ttf') format('truetype'), /* Safari, Android, iOS */
url('fonts/bebasneue.svg#svgBebasNeue') format('svg'); /* Legacy iOS */

Then I went back to Font Squirrel, downloaded the kit fresh again, and renamed everything correctly, and it worked.

You need to set Access-Control-Allow-Origin HTTP Header for this
See here:
IE9 blocks download of cross-origin web font

Does this work?

@font-face {
    font-family: 'BebasNeue';
    src: url('fonts/BebasNeue.eot');
    src: url('fonts/BebasNeue.eot?#iefix') format('embedded-opentype'),
         url('fonts/BebasNeue.otf') format("opentype");

On Fontsquirrel they do it this way

Download the @font-face kit from there

@font-face {
    font-family: 'BebasNeueRegular';
    src: url('/utils/load_demo_font.php?font=960/BebasNeue-webfont.eot');
    src: url('/utils/load_demo_font.php?font=960/BebasNeue-webfont.eot?#iefix') format('embedded-opentype'),
         url('/utils/load_demo_font.php?font=960/BebasNeue-webfont.woff') format('woff'),
         url('/utils/load_demo_font.php?font=960/BebasNeue-webfont.ttf') format('truetype'),
         url('/utils/load_demo_font.php?font=960/BebasNeue-webfont.svg#BebasNeueRegular') format('svg');
    font-weight: normal;
    font-style: normal;
