Assuming you pass data from host1 to host2, you can store a reference
to factory2 in factory1.

from twisted.internet.protocol import Protocol
from twisted.internet import reactor, protocol

class InputProtocol(Protocol):

   def connectionMade(self):
       print "Input connected"

   def connectionLost(self, reason):
       print "Input disconnected"

   def dataReceived(self, data):
       # repeat the data to all output connections
       print "relaying data"
       for conn in self.factory.output_factory.connections:

class OutputProtocol(Protocol):

    def connectionMade(self):
        print "Output connected"

    def connectionLost(self, reason):
        print "Output disconnected"

class InputFactory(protocol.ClientFactory):
    protocol = InputProtocol

    def __init__(self, output_factory):
        self.output_factory = output_factory

class OutputFactory(protocol.ClientFactory):
   protocol = OutputProtocol

   def __init__(self):
       self.connections = []

if __name__ == '__main__':

   of = OutputFactory()
   if = InputFactory(of)
   reactor.connectTCP("sourcehost", 10001, if)
   reactor.connectTCP("destinationhost", 10002, of)

(totally untested)
