If your apache servers in Amazon's cloud can't be contacted by Xymon,
they're not likely to be contacted by anyone/anything else, which could
very well make the web servers useless.

Are you sure that the web servers can't be accessed, or is it more that
you're using the stock server-status stanza, and haven't added or modified
the Allow from line to include your Xymon server, and so your apache
server is responding with "403 Forbidden"?
