You can't control that from the client end, as it could be a security risk
for the remote installation.

If the remote host is under your control and is running sshd from OpenSSH,
you can add the following directive to /etc/ssh/sshd_config on that system:

GatewayPorts yes

That will tell the sshd to make forwarded ports listen on instead
of on

Don't forget "service sshd restart" after making the change.
