If you are getting an IP address of out then that indicates that your primary ethernet is set to IP address and that you must be using a different IP address for your actual communication.
All IP addresses that start with 127 are reserved as being internal loop-back addresses that are never accessible outside the host. See RFC1700 paragraph g
It is possible that earlier you had to lock your hostid to an ethernet MAC address and you picked one that you do not actually use; see
However with the I suspect that MATLAB might have gotten fooled and accidentally created the TCP socket against a loopback address :(
If you were not aware that you were using for your IP address on an interface, you should probably change it to . That might involve changing your hosts file or equivalent.
