If it is possible to route the signal ( counter output) to the PFI line 5 should be done using any of the methods listed in the link below:
However the 6723 routing table shows that there is no direct on indirect route between the counter´s output and PFI 5, you may try it.

The NI 6723 is based on the DAQ-STC ASIC, which can input most timing/triggering signals from any PFI terminal, but can only output specific signals to specific PFI terminals. For example, PFI5 can be used as an input for the counter source, counter gate, AO start trigger, AO sample clock, etc. The only signal that can be output to PFI5/AO SAMP CLOCK is the AO sample clock (i.e. the DAC update signal for hardware timed generations).
