Possibility of disabling raw socket use in Kea ?

Hello,


With dhcpd, it was possible to disable usage of raw sockets, as described in:

https://kb.isc.org/article/AA-00379/0/How-DHCP-uses-raw-sockets.html


In our case, we have no need for raw sockets, since we won't handle direct clients (all DHCP traffic incoming will be relayed).
More to the point, we need to be able to perform packet filtering beforehand (through iptables), which is not feasible if the DHCP server uses raw sockets.

So my question is:

Is it possible to not use raw sockets with Kea ? (at build time and/or server startup)



Thanks for your time.


Regards,
Nicolas.
