Siemens Profinet Scanner

This module will use Layer2 packets, known as Profinet Discovery packets, to detect all Siemens (and sometimes other) devices on a network. It is perfectly SCADA-safe, as there will only be ONE single packet sent out. Devices will respond with their IP configuration and hostnames.
