Yes. Use ListenAddresses = inet: to listen on all interfaces,  
arrange for bbstored to connect to any of them. The name in the  
certificate is not checked, just that it's signed by the Server CA.

Look into using SyncAllowScript in bbstored.conf. Write a script to  
determine whether the store is reachable.
