There are several ways.

If you have a "shell account" from your ISP you can put
a modem on one of the computers in the network and 
tell TR that you TNC is on the port where the modem is.
You then use the terminal window (control-b) in TR to 
issue commands to dial out the modem  and then telnet
to the cluster of your choice.

If you have a linux computer as your net gateway and firewall 
like some do you can use this method described by WM5R:


You can do a similar thing using the WinTelnetX program 
on a windows computer.

You can find that here:
