I would set up  a GRE tunnel like so

---------Router 1--------------

interface Tunnel1
 ip unnumbered Ethernet0
 ip nat inside
 tunnel source Ethernet0
 tunnel destination x.x.x.x (public IP address of router2)


----------Router 2------------------
interface Tunnel1
 ip unnumbered Ethernet0
 ip nat inside
 tunnel source Ethernet0
 tunnel destination y.y.y.y (public ip address of router1)

Then just make sure that you have routes accross the link using interface tunnel1

This link is very similar except you are going to use the 2500 to tunnel the data

This is not encrypted though and if you want to do that ... things change a bit

Thanks scott
