I think you misunderstood the docs there. If you speak about "push
replication" you mean "RefreshAndPersist", right? That doesn't mean that
the master connects to the slaves and pushes the changes to them.

With "RefreshAndPersist" the slaves connect to the master and keep that
connection open indefinitely (and reconnect if it goes down), waiting
for the master to "push" changes through that open connection.

Actually, you apparently misunderstood the docs. ;) RefreshAndPersist is "pull" replication. I suggest reading the admin guide, which discusses how to set up push-based replication.
