A simple port check works just fine.  I tried the anonymous bind also, which results in failure also.  Anonymous bind from command line works fine.

a'write then. What if you ask for this test to be performed 
interactively in debug mode? Try the following, substituting the 
hostname from hosts.cfg for foo.bar.com.

   xymoncmd xymonnet --noping --debug foo.bar.com

It should spill everything xymonnet is trying to do and give you an idea 
where the problem is. When I try it, I see (among the debris) the 
following interesting lines:

    Do things because you should, not just because you can.
