D-Feet will only work for applications that connect to alljoyn-daemon using the spec unix:abstract=alljoyn. That means D-Feet cannot be used to look at:

  • Routing node to Routing node communication (using AllJoyn TCP/UDP transports)
  • Thin Leaf Node to Routing node communication (to/from Thin Core library)

Hence, a better approach is to use protocol parsers in Wireshark as suggested by ry.jones. The protocol parser is also helpful to look at Next-Gen NameService traffic that is exchanged during Discovery phase (corresponding to FindAdvertisedName and AdvertiseName APIs).

After I run alljoyn-daemon and bbservice example, I run d-feet and tried to connected to other bus, But I get error like this: "can not connect to 'unix:abstract=alljoyn': Error calling StartServiceByName for org.freedesktop.DBus: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.Failed: Unable to start"
