Steps Performed
  1. In a dbvisit's console get replication's settings by `dbvrep> show interface`. From the output you can see where the APPLY process should be running
  2. Check if the APPLY process is opened on the target server by `ps -ef|grep dbv` for Unix based environments or check process tab in Task manager in Windows.
  3. Check if the port is opened in the target database by `nestat -ano|grep 7902` on Unix based environments and by the command `C:\Program Files (x86)\Dbvisit\Standby>netstat -ano|findstr 7890`for Windows.
  4. Check if you have the correct entries in your `/etc/hosts` by pinging entries from show interface output on both servers.
  5. use telnet to check if you are able to reach the port 7902 from the source server. if you aren't able to reach it, check if the firewall is enabled in the target or modify its rules.
