Check the Status Messages in the Primary Site Console
Site Database -> System Status -> Your Secondary Site

Is the Primary Site Server Computer Account member of the local Administration group on the remote server?
Have you installed IIS and configured WebDav correctly?
Here's a guide to configure WebDav:

Hi,

Thank you for your response, I have checked the Status as per your comments above - There is a green tick over Component status and also Site system status.

In relation to WebDAV and IIS - they are configured correctly, The MPsetup.log ->

Hi Merowinger,

So I opened a call with Microsoft on this as I had checked and double checked that all pre-req's where met in relation to adding Primary Site Server Computer Account member of the local Administration group on the remote server etc...

Also cheers for the link on WebDAV configuration - I had lost some time on that previously so I will note that link for future reference.

So in the end my issue boiled down to the 32bit compatability.
At a command prompt I ran this command that was provided by Microsoft -

Cscript %SYSTEMDRIVE%\inetpub\adminscripts\adsutil.vbs SET W3SVC/AppPools/Enable32bitAppOnWin64 0

I had previously ran this command but with the value 1 instead of zero.

I have now refreshed packages from the Primary server and the share has been created and the packages copied across.
