How can I search the GenPept database?

I'd like to search the GenPept database (translations of the GenBank
nonredundant database) with a nucleotide sequence translated in all
reading frames.  You can use the tblastx program through the NCBI
server to do this, but the GenPept database isn't available (and the
server doesn't let you dynamically translate the nonredundant
database).  Is it possible to telnet to a site or some other method
for accessing tblastx and the GenPept database?

Thanks a lot.
