Communicating on a wan link

Hi, in my topology I have 2 different "sites" set up in GNS3. I have a router in the middle acting as an isp and I have a router at both end points of the sites. I would like to know what is the best way I enable them to communicate across the "isp"?.
I can post a pic of the config if you guys want but I'm not sure if I can do it on this website.

P.S....For the "isp" what type of device should I be using? Should I be using a router iso with some modifications to the config?

Thanks for the help!

    It really depends on what you'd like to achieve. If you want a straight point-to-point link, just set the encapsulation (either PPP or HDLC), set IP addresses, no shutdown the interfaces - Should work a treat.

    If you're studying for ICND2, you may want to create a frame-relay scenario, in that case i'd recommend to use a router, creating mappings as you go rather than using the GNS3 frame-relay switch.
