I'd like to know what type of cable I could use to connect serial in a router Cisco 2600 with IBM control unit 5494. I used v.24 male cable from 5494 and connect it with v.24 cable female with Cisco cable but the sdlc address in interface is disconnected. Is that right or not?

This second link contains generic information on connecting to an IBM 5494 control unit:
If the above links prove insufficient to cover your needs, I'd suggest you take some time searching on Cisco's website as your bound to find the solution to your problem buried somewhere within their site!
