Yes. As you saying, You have been using these two machines under same WiFi network. Obviously, they can communicate via alljoyn bus network.

Follow these steps here https://allseenalliance.org/developers/develop/building/linux/build-source to install dependencies (prerequisites) for alljoyn source building in x86 Linux machines (Ubuntu) , till "git" section. Then, Go for this sample alljoyn base service, notification https://allseenalliance.org/developers/develop/run-sample-apps/notification/linux. Have a try.!

Hopefully, this can help you.

Thanks, Ganesh

Of course you can do that. I assume u already built the Alljoyn on linux.

->Connect to the wifi. ->Navigate to the path: ~/ALLJOYN_DIR/alljoyn/core/alljoyn/build/linux/arm/debug/dist/cpp/samples/chat ->run this command without quotes "./chat -s xyz", xyz is a user defined name to your chat service which will be used by the users to join you chat session. ->Now open another terminal, navigate to the same path and execute "./chat -j xyz" ->Now u have a simple chat service running. ->Try with a "Hi" in one terminal and see whether u receive it in the other terminal or not.
