Gateway KVM to specific NIC

Hi,
I have the whonix gateway running on debian with KVM.

The host has two network interfaces and I want that the Whonix Gateway to communicate only via one specific NIC.

Atm it is in NAT mode and communicates via the wrong NIC.

How can I set the whonix external network to a specific NIC ?
Would this cause safety problems ?

How can I configure a KVM virtual network card to use only a specific network interface?

Note: I don’t maintain Whonix KVM.

This needs creating a network bridge. Some laptop NICs may not support that YMMV. No it shouldn’t be dangerous.
