At the moment, there is no remote authentication method implemented and
dbus-daemon does not accept anonymous connections. This means that you
cannot successfully connect to a remote dbus-daemon via tcp.

In this bug report a patch has been proposed to allow anonymous
connections to dbus-daemon:

With this patched dbus-daemon I successfully connected multiple
dbus-clients from a local area network to a common bus.
