The default local address is set to and in case the remote port is not available a random one will be found for it.

In case your OS supports it you can uncheck 'Use as the local address for all services' to make it use the same local address as remote.

Finally you can click 'Find free ports for all services' in case you do not want to use the default remote port numbers.

Scalable applications

Recent versions of OpenShift allows creation of scalable applications and also specify the size of the gear your application will run on.

The application wizard now supports this and the settings available to you depend on your account type.

If you do not care for scaling or gear size then simply just leave the default values as is.
