			// Define the Publisher, publication, and databases.

			string publisherName = publisherInstance;
			string subscriberName = subscriberInstance;
			string subscriptionDbName = "AdventureWorks2012Replica";
			string publicationDbName = "AdventureWorks2012";
			string hostname = @"adventure-works\garrett1";

			//Create a connection to the Publisher.
			ServerConnection conn = new ServerConnection(subscriberName);

			// Create the objects that we need.
			MergePublication publication;
			MergeSubscription subscription;

			try
			{
				// Connect to the Publisher.
				conn.Connect();

				// Ensure that the publication exists and that 
				// it supports push subscriptions.
				publication = new MergePublication();
				publication.Name = publicationName;
				publication.DatabaseName = publicationDbName;
				publication.ConnectionContext = conn;

				if (publication.IsExistingObject)

					// Create the push subscription.
					subscription.Create();
				}
				else
				{

						publicationName, publisherName));
				}
			}
			catch (Exception ex)
