Open cmd on both DCs and run below command and post the output here

repadmin /showrepl
dcdiag /q
ipconfig /all


So that we can troubleshoot further

Ok
Logs showing that replication is happening properly and TCP/IP properties also correct

Please run below command on both DCs and check if sysvol and netlogon are there as shared folders and let me know.

Run below command on both DCs with cmd and post output here
repadmin /syncall

Also check in active directory sites and services if you can manually trigger the replication successfully ?
Check "Initiating Replication Using the Sites and Services Manager Snap-in" section in below article to trigger replication manually.

So there you don't have to worry if manually triggered replication is working fine.

Intrasite Replication: (Replication between DCs in same site)
When a domain controller writes a change to its local copy of the Active Directory, a timer is started that determines when the domain controller's replication partners should be notified of the change. By default, this interval is 15 seconds in Windows Server 2003 and later.
You can use below article to change this interval, but its absolutely not required
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/214678

Inter site replication:
This replication schedule is 180 Mins by default within two sites.

Let me know your both DCs are in different locations and in different subnets ? so that I can help you.
If that's the case, have you created separate AD sites ?
You can create new AD site in that case, move your that location to that site.
Now your replication will be triggered every 180 Minutes

If you want to schedule replication with schedule task, then just create one batch file
with below syntax without Quotes and create schedule task on both servers at interval you want.
"repadmin /syncall"

Check below article how to create site
