There is no "factory" attribute on the `IConnector` interface at all:


Neither is there a "transport" attribute, nor do any of the transport 
interfaces have a "protocol" attribute.

All this means that Twisted isn't promising you anything about the 
meaning or existence of any of these attributes.

So, why don't you just use `f` instead?
