Assuming you installed the agent package via one of the published packages,
the process will be running as the
cua user. However, in order for this
plugin to communicate over netlink sockets it needs the agent process to be
root (or some user with
CAP_NET_RAW). Be sure
to ensure these permissions before running agent with this plugin included.
