[ndnSIM] Does P2P Link works on top of NFD faces?

In my application scenario, since ndnSIM does not yet support the TCP/UDP
face creation (http://redmine.named-data.net/issues/2371), I have built the
network topology by establishing P2P links between the nodes. I then get
the faceId from the P2P link using a NetDevice. Used a modified version of
the function outlined here:

 uint32_t faceId = ndnStack->getFaceByNetDevice(netDevice)->getId();

To find the faceId for the next hop (adjacent node) using the configured
faceUri, the NFD does not return anything since it does not recognize the

One way is to get this faceId from the P2P link again but I do not know if
this will work. Does this also mean that it completely get away from the
underlying NFD transport services? I want to know if P2P link works on top
of NFD or not?

As ndnSIM does not yet support TCP/UDP faces, what alternative does it
provide to use the underlying NFD and its transport services?
