Sure, Just tell qemu/libvirt where spice server should be binded, for example:
Add element <listen type='address' address=''/> as child element of <graphics> element and spice server will listen on all interfaces (or choose only exact IP address where you want it to be binded).
Add option addr= into spice qemu command line options directly provided you run qemu-kvm manually.
(Hope I understood the question).
