If the box name, puppetlabs/centos-5.11-64-nocm, is used in a Vagrantfile, then vagrant will automatically fetch the box when bringing a VM up that uses it.

To get a URL for manual box download, you will need to use the Atlas API:

curl -s | python -m json.tool

    "description_markdown": "\n* version 1.0.2, see the [changelog]( for details\n ",
    "number": "1.0.2",
    "providers": [
            "created_at": "2015-07-29T15:32:19.356Z",

Thanks. With the last vagrant version (1.7.4), it works. With vagrant provided by Ubuntu 14.04 (1.4.3-1), vagrant can't fetch the box. (The box 'puppetlabs/centos-5.11-64-nocm' could not be found.)

Ahh, yes. The ability to automatically download boxes from Atlas was added in Vagrant 1.5.0.
