No. The SocksListenAddress is for the address of the SOCKS server,
not the address of the SOCKS client.
Example: you have 10.0.0.1 through 10.0.0.4 networked together.
10.0.0.1 is running a Tor client. Set SocksListenAddress to
10.0.0.1:9050 and then tell each of the other machines to use that
same address as their SOCKS proxy.

The default is that any machine that can access the address given for
the SOCKS server can route through the Tor client. The reason
127.0.0.1 is special is because it refers specifically to the local
host from any IPv4-networked machine, so by definition, a host cannot
be accessed from anywhere outside itself as 127.0.0.1 (or any of the
other predefined "loopback" addresses).
