[Xymon] Xymon status does not get updated

Sorry for the confusion. I was trying to say that xymond does not load 
the hosts.cfg file instead of it doesn't update hosts.cfg.

Yes this IP is my xymon server. I can telnet and ssh to the server from 
terminal with no problems.
For some strange reason the xymon main page does not get updated 
anymore. I have manually added a few more hosts in 'hosts.cfg' but they 
don't show up.

Also I have checked that
1) xymon.sh is running
2) SELINUX was disabled but iptables was not, so I have now turned 
iptables off as well but the problem persists. :(

I really don't know what is happening. If you have anymore suggestions 
please  let me know.

Many thanks
