When you set the ping synchronization profile option to on, dbmlsync connects to the remote database, retrieves information
required to connect to the MobiLink server, connects to the server, and authenticates the specified MobiLink user.
When the MobiLink server receives a ping, it connects to the consolidated database, authenticates the user, and then sends
the authenticating user status and value back to the client. If the MobiLink user name cannot be found in the ml_user system
table and the MobiLink server is running with the command line option -zu+, the MobiLink server adds the user to the ml_user
MobiLink system table.
To adequately test your connection, you should use the ping synchronization profile option with all the synchronization options
you want to use to synchronize with dbmlsync. When the ping synchronization profile option is included, dbmlsync does not
perform a synchronization.
If the ping succeeds, the MobiLink server issues an information message. If the ping does not succeed, it issues an error
