A print statement in the render method:

def render(self, request):
   self._clientIP = request.getClientIP()
   print 'REQUEST:', request
   return resource.Resource.render(self, request)

gave: "<POST / HTTP/1.0>" ... shouldn't that be "<POST /RPC2 HTTP/1.0>" ?

The client code works fine with a simplefied server:

#!/usr/bin/env python

from twisted.web import xmlrpc, server

class Example(xmlrpc.XMLRPC):
    """An example object to be published."""

    def xmlrpc_echo(self, x):
        """Return all passed args."""
        return x

if __name__ == '__main__':
    from twisted.internet import reactor
    r = Example()
    reactor.listenTCP(7080, server.Site(r))
