[Xorp-hackers] dynamic BGP peering

I am trying to add peers to BGP dynamically using the XRL functions.

I am using the flowing two calls: Send_add_peer & send_enable_peer.

The calls are working and I can see that the peers are establishing
communication using: Show bgp peers detail 

However they are not sending update messages. In the config.boot file I have
initialize the local bgp to export rip routes, but when I add new peers they
are not exporting the rip routes. 

I am assuming I need to enable export policy on the new peers using policy
send_export but not sure. Also, I do not know how to enable it using

Can someone please let me know what calls I need to use to make the new
peers exchange update messages (for example export rip routes)?  An example
of the calls would be very helpful.
