you can connect via local loopback, or the IP address + port of the console server. (yes, over the network, which is why there needs to be ACLs protecting the NAS.) as mentioned, `telnet a.b.c.d 2005` would typically connect to port 5 on the 2511... assuming the 2511 is "properly" configured to work with the equipment it's connected to, that should just pass you through to the end device. if you can connect but don't get any data, terminal settings (between the cisco and end device) are probably just wrong or mismatched.
