[ndnSIM] Interest is not re-broadcasted using the same wireless face in ndnSIM

I am currently doing a scenario using ndnSIM as the simulation tool. The
scenario includes:
- several nodes with mobility installed
- Wifi with 802.11a standard, wifiChannel with
ns3::RangePropagationLossModel and limited maxRange, and with type adhoc

Basically, the consumer nodes will send the Interest through the wireless
face to nodes within the MaxRange. This works perfectly on first
transmission, but the Interest is not forwarded to other nodes which is in
range with the receiving nodes (In other words, it is not forwarded, there
is only 1 hop)

I have already looked into
and the implementation is similar to mine. The problem is, it is using
ndnSIM 1.0 and the custom strategy methods have been changed on ndnSIM
2.0+, which I am using right now. I've also read somewhere that nodes do
not actually re-broadcast Interest and Data packets on the same face it
received the packet from.

I am new to ndnSIM (Have just spent around 3 days working around custom
scenario), so can you please guide on possible solutions of this problem?
- Should I create a custom face for this scenario? If so, can u point me on
how to do it?

Thank you,
