Bluemix IBM Container with Mongodb connection failed

After running it locally, it all works perfectly but upon running it on Bluemix and assigning to it public IP adress, connection attempt results with following error:
$ mongo --host 188.8.131.52 MongoDB shell version: 2.6.3 connecting to: 184.108.40.206:27017/test 2015-11-01T17:24:10.557+0100 Error: couldn't connect to server 220.127.116.11:27017 (18.104.22.168), connection attempt failed at src/mongo/shell/mongo.js:148 exception: connect failed
This is the image of the container configuraion in bluemix
Could you tell me why i’m not able to make the connection? Am i doing something wrong?

The error you are having is because port 27017 is not open in IBM Containers.
I suggest you open a support ticket with IBM Bluemix Support and ask this port to be opened or you can check with IBM Bluemix Support team for an alternative open port you can use as well.
You can open a support ticket in the following link:
I believe you will have to just use the private IP for the container. ex. 10.x.x.x. The port 27017 should be open if your application is running also in the IBM Containers. I realize this can be a pain when testing this locally on your own machine, and would be easier to just have the public IP address opening port 27017.
