Pass the -h flag to any of the commands, e.g. bbstored -h. The first line will have the version:
# bbstored -h
Box Backup Store Server v0.11_trunk_2368, (c) Ben Summers and contributors 2003-2008

Yes, however given your output below are you talking about a backup server or a backup client? How have you been attempting to start the service?

Please check if any other processes are running on the system. Run the following commands as root:
ps auxww | grep bbstore | grep -v grep
ps auxww | grep bbackup | grep -v grep
If there is any output then another process is already running. You can probably kill it.

Ah. This could be the key. Have you:
- Updated /etc/hosts and/or DNS with the new IP address
- Updated ListenAddresses in bbstored.conf and/or bbackupd.conf
