I need to use Wi-Fi Direct on AllJoyn 15.09. However 15.09 is not support Wi-Fi Direct based on ANDROID OS currently. I've found the solution to enable Wi-Fi Direct. When router search all interfaces with a wild-card In IpNameServiceImpl.cc, "p2p" interface is just skipped by check routine.

I remove this check routine, "if(entries[i].m_name.find("p2p") == qcc::String::npos) ", and than Wi-Fi Direct is working well.

In this context, I was wondering why "p2p" (Wi-Fi Direct) is disabled in 15.09. Please share the reason with me.^^

WiFi Direct support has been disabled since inception of AllSeen alliance. For instance, you will find the same piece of code from Dec 2013 as well.

You can read more about why WiFi Direct was disabled here.

When the developers worked on WiFi Direct support about three years ago, there were issues and the functionality wasn't stable. WiFi Direct has been disabled in the codebase, since then.

Thank you for your answer and share the information. :) I have another question...If Wi-Fi Direct has interoperability between different OS and device as mentioned Bspencer's comment, I wonder that it's supported on Linux OS (Only except ANDROID). Is it stable on Linux OS? I really want to know...
