You can try doing a run of xymonnet with the --debug option enabled. 
Near the end it should indicate what server it's trying to communicate with.

If you're doing a run of xymonnet by hand, make sure to wrap it in 
'xymoncmd' so that the proper environment is loaded (usually 
xymonserver.cfg); that's where the configuration for the destination is 
ultimately coming from, so if this is on a different machine it might be 
going locally. There's also no need to have the "xymonnet" label in 
hosts.cfg itself; xymond will accept the report without that (although I 
don't believe there are any issues that will come up from that).

If the reports that xymonnet is generating about the hosts (the results 
of the network tests) are coming in, then '--report' really should be 
all that's needed to send the self-report as well.
