PROFINET IO (PN-IO)

The PROFINET/IO (PN-IO) protocol is a field bus protocol related to decentralized periphery.

PROFINET/IO is based on connectionless DCE/RPC and the "lightweight" PROFINET/RT (ethernet type 0x8892) protocols:

Wireshark

The PN-IO dissector is fully functional.

Preference Settings

There are no PN-IO specific preference settings.

Example capture file

XXX - Add a simple example capture file to the SampleCaptures page and link from here. Keep it short, it's also a good idea to gzip it to make it even smaller, as Wireshark can open gzipped files automatically.

Display Filter

A complete list of PN-IO display filter fields can be found in the display filter reference

Capture Filter

You cannot directly filter PN-IO protocols while capturing.
