i have been given an assignment on programming a simple NNTP client which should be able to connect with any of the newsservers and it should download all the news articles posted in a particular news group. I searched for free news servers but i didnt get anything. I just need to access it for 4 days or so. How can i proceed? do i first have to sign up for a particular newsgroup in a newsserver to view and download the news articles?

You should be able to see how the "Slick RSS" news reader does this as well. I use it in my Chrome browsers.

Almost all news providers offer a free 10 day trial. You can sign up for any of them, then quit before the 10 days are up.
