You have two options:

1- The easiest is to get serial Cables and connect the routers back to back. You will need to set the clock on the DCE side of the cable. You will need one V.35 Serial Male Cable and another V.35 Female cable.

2- Terminate the two routers serially to two NTUs and connect the NTUs using RJ-45 cable to each others thus simulating a leased line betyween the router. Therefore, you need to NTUs with two serial cables.

Hope this helps and appreciate your rating,
