GlobalProtect with 2 NICs

Here is an interesting question:

 

If a system has two fully configured NICs with internet connectivity, which interface does GlobalProtect use establish its connection to a Palo Alto gateway?  How can we select which NIC it uses?  Is it something through the client? Or is it something that must be done through the system itself?

 

Note: The system is running Windows.

 

Thanks!

The GlobalProtect Client will look at the available route metric values and select the route with the lowest metric for sending GlobalProtect Client events to the GlobalProtect Gateway.

it depends on the routing table (default gateway)... so far i know...

But why running a client with two NICs?
