I had my suspicions about that..
Do you think the TCPCLIENTADDRESS option would be of any use? I guess
(without looking) this updates the TCP_ADDRESS column on the server to
suggest an IP to make next contact with, not to ensure the client only
listens on that IP address.

I'm not aware of any TSM client parameter to limit port listening to a
specific computer network interface. Usually, the access is limited by
convention, which is to say instructing usage to go through a given
network address and thus interface; or, some kind of host-based or
external firewall enforces the required access rules.
