How to hook up a router to router with serial ports

I would like to hookup 2 routers via the serial ports. I know one needs to be DCE and the other needs to be DTE. They are both 2500 series routers. Where do I get a cable that will go between them (DB60 on both ends)

Re: How to hook up a router to router with serial ports

You would need to use 2 cables; attach

a DCE cable to one (which causes it

to act as a DCE), and a DTE to the other

(which causes it to act as a DTE).

You then connect the ends of the 2

cables (which can be RS-232, V.35, etc).
