The error message means that no one is answering your connection
attempt.   The host cambridge.apple.com doesn't handle news service
(although it used to).  You should type in the name of a host at your
site which does.  (We have one internally here at Apple which I don't
think is accessible to outsiders which I use with this example code
almost daily.)
