You might be right about dip-server not needed here, but I wonder how you would have your export to start otherwise... I use dip for import only, so you could be right here.
Dip server is not 'listening'. It's getting kicked off by oidmon every now and then and starts to read the other directory to check for changes (using the last change number).

BUt to see how it works, I just tried it. With dip-server on, and the profile enabled (did you do that?) it fired after 60 seconds and fires every minute.... so it does use odisrv.
If you look in OID manager, you hav to refresh your providers to see the actual result (the screen does not update automatically)

And also important: you only get CHANGED entries in your LDIF, so if nothing changes, no output! If you want the initial content, you'll have to bootstrap your profile!
(dipassistant bs... etc)
