#5078 implements commands forwarding from the Control Agent to the Kea servers. Right now, the DHCP servers must be started with root privileges because they open sockets on privileged ports. When starting the DHCP server with root, the socket file created for inter-process communication has restricted access to root clients. The socket file should not require root access because CA is typically ran by non-root user.
