Probably not: I think the easiest way is to do it via your firewall. Though I 
don't know anything about firewalls for Windows.  You need to do this:

* enable s2s listener
* on server Y on port 5269 (or the port you specified for s2s), only allow 
packages from server X (IP, domain)
* on server X you do the same
