Matlab and PICAXE comms

Anyone out there who knows how to make Matlab work with serial communications?

I'm in the early stages of writing a matlab program to do inverse kinematics for a leggy kinda robot, and I want to get it to send the numbers to a picaxe via rs232 - seems fairly straightforward?

My test program is behaving wierdly

*code*

 

Picaxe = serial('COM4');

set(Picaxe,'BaudRate', 9600, 'DataBits', 8, 'Parity', 'none','StopBits', 1, 'FlowControl', 'none'); 

fopen(Picaxe);

fprintf(Picaxe,'1234');

Picaxe.ValuesSent

B = fread(Picaxe)
