No, it isn't possible to control that in Pidgin itself, however I
wouldn't expect it to cause problems (apart from perhaps using a
different network than you want it to).

If you're not using Windows, it may be possible to configure avahi
( to restrict which interfaces it will use and have
that affect Pidgin.
