The cause of the problem was related to the XINETD service on the receiving Linux system. In this case the XINETD needed to be  recycled because XCOM had been reinstalled. 

Additional Information

Here are different commands to check the status of XINETD on Linux RHEL 6 or 7:

/etc/init.d/xinetd status   or   systemctl status xinetd
To start/restart XINETD: 

/etc/init.d/xinetd start   or   systemctl start xinetd
/etc/init.d/xinetd restart   or    systemctl restart xinetd
