Actually, you can telnet to the access server on port 2000+line for direct access to the console port. So, for line 1, you would telnet to the access server's IP address on port 2001.  You'll be asked for access credentials for the 2509 when you connect, but will be taken directly to the console session instead of the CLI.  There's no need to open a session to the access server's CLI before connecting. Does that help?

Just to be clear, are you using the access server as a console server and wanting to have a tab open for each console connection?

Well the problem is that you have to log onto the access router on each window, then from the access router perform the reverse telnet - which you can set up a host name for - on each window.   So the only way you would be able to do this would be to program putty or something like it to #1 log on to the access router #2 issue the reverse telnet to the appropriate console port and #3 automate logon to the appropriate device.  You can do it all manually, but that won't be much fun.  I haven't played with it but I think you can automate putty to login to the access router.  But don't think you can really go beyond that - but I am not sure.

This will allow you to easily keep one console session in each tab of your terminal application. If it doesn't work as described, post a sanitised configuration and I will have a look at it.

You can use reverse-telnet without authenticating on the 2509, and only authenticate on the managed devices. My only issue with this setup is the telnet timeout on the 2509.

Use Ctrl + shift + 6 and then xx for switching between routers and switches.
