You mean a public server that will let you connect to it with unknown protocols? Not that I am aware of, no.
But you can certainly test socket code on the same machine. Have the server listen on the designated port and point your client code at localhost. Or you would use a spare machine on the same network. There really is no reason to connect all the way out to a public server on the Internet just to learn sockets.
