The following fields apply to a mobile configuration:

Port from which the client is to be launched.
Debug port
Port for displaying debug information.
Log fetching delay
The delay in milliseconds before a log is fetched.
Connection Timeout
The time in milliseconds that the connection will wait for the client to respond. You can usually use the default timeout of 3000, but you can modify it if your machine is very slow.
Use autostart script
Check this option to have Genero Studio automatically start the client.
Uncheck this option if you want to manually start the client.
Device ID
The identifier of device (iOS or Android). Use the List Devices option in the Tools > Android Tools or Tools > iOS Tools menu to get list of device IDs. This allows multiple display devices to be connected at the same time.

If you are using iOS and Xcode, you can use a substring from the string displayed by the List Devices option. For example, you can use the label of the device as displayed in the General settings.

The Start Display Client button starts the display client.
