This capture is from my Xbee ZB Pro coordinator. The *55C0 device is configured as a router. When it joins with the coordinator, I receive this:
08:31:40.307 INFO XbeeAgent - Received frame type 0x91 08:31:40.307 DEBUG XbeeAgent - This is a Digi cluster message 08:31:40.308 INFO XbeeAgent - From 13A200408C55C0 endpoint 0xE8 08:31:40.308 INFO XbeeAgent - To endpoint 0xE8, profile 0xC105, cluster 0x0095 08:31:40.313 INFO XbeeAgent - DATA: F7960013A200408C55C05745415448455200FFFE0103C105101E

Is this a join notification? Does anybody know anything about the format? Breaking it down I can see:
F796 is the network-assigned 16-bit network address of the device 0013A200408C55C0 is the MAC address of the device that just joined 57 45 41 54 48 45 52 00 is ascii WEATHER (the name of the device) with a null at the end FFFE ??? (perhaps "parent address") 01 device type (0=coordinator, 1=router, 2=end_device) 03 status (what does this mean?) C105 looks like the profile id 101E ??? (is this Digi's mfg code? Or some kind of revision code?)

Does anybody know what the remaining bytes mean?

Is there any way from this message that I can tell whether the device connected directly or through an intermediate router?

No, it's really not an API frame format question, I was asking about the contents of a received message (which one would never generate on their own) specifically related to the join notification packet format.

I have yet to find digi documentation that explains how it works; however, there is python code in the wild that decodes these messages. By looking at that code I was able to figure out the packet format. It was not 'authoritative' in the sense that it's not backed by documentation; but that format makes sense and at least seems to match the limited conditions under which I have tested.

I would need to see the Full API frame in order to understand what it is you are asking about.

Have you tried looking at the frame using the Digi API frame tool (http://www.digi.com/support/kbase/kbaseresultdetl?id=3215 )
