I played around with your code at http://twistedmatrix.com/pipermail/twisted-python/2005-August/011115.html, even if I don't understand polish. ;-)

I didn't expect that one must handle control codes (your function reponseFunct), I expected the protocol to handle that for me, but anyway, that was no problem (i.e. you solved it before). And with your code I could even switch off the echo (your next thread).

What I don't understand is how to 'inject' some commands and collect their result.
What you tried in your "command" function in __main__ can't work, because the protocol has no transport.
I don't understand how to get at the Factory's actual protocol instance and its transport.

I could 'hardcode' a list of commands in my protocol class, but that would make no sense...

Probably I shouldn't use a ClientFactory but something else.
