Issues running the "simple" Android app from samples over WifiDirect

Hi there,

I'm trying to run the "simple" Android app from the samples directory that comes with the AllJoyn core framework and I have issues having the phones connecting to each other. More specifically, on one phone I'm running the client and on the other I'm running the WFDSimpleService. Now, the problem: when the 2 phones are in the same wifi network, everything works fine, but when I have them connected to each other only over WifiDirect, there is no communication happening. I assume that this sample app is supposed to work over WifiDirect, so maybe I'm doing something wrong...

Thanks in advance!

I found many comments on your forum pointing to the following link https://www.alljoyn.org/comment/9346#comment-9346 for instructions on how to enable WifiDirect, but the link is not working...

Hi vladzy, Do you solve the Wi-Fi direct problem? I want to enable Wi-Fi Direct transportation on Android device. Where is the link that you post? Does anyone else know about the solution?

WiFi Direct is not supported.

Then why is that sample provided in the core framework? I'm a bit confused...
