I am trying to transfer a remote force to three different locations, as shown below.
The upper hole is fixed, whereas the three lower holes is supposed to be loaded by a remote force. I tried to do it, as follows.
I have applied the remote force at all the three faces. Now, I can simply put the coordinates of the remote force. I just wanted to know if it is the correct way. What will it do?
Will it distribute the remote force among those 3 faces in accordance with their individual distance from the remote force location, which is exactly I want want it to do.
Or will it assign the full magnitude of the remote force to all the 3 faces individually. Which is not I want it to do.

It looks to me like you defined the problem backwards. The three holes and the flat base are obviously fixed to some surface. I suggest you select the three holes for a Fixed Support and apply the Force to the single cylindrical hole on the end of the bracket.

Don't worry BCs are correct. That is a butterfly car door hinge. The three holes are connected to the door, that is why it is free. I will apply the loads from the CG of the door as a remote force on the 3 holes on the hinge.

A remote force can be set to a behavior of Rigid or Deformable. I recommend you use Rigid because those three holes are in fact fastened to a car door. When you do that, the three holes have a rigid spider connecting them to each other and the coordinates of the remote force.
A door hinge usually consists of a top and bottom bracket, so I assume you have calculated the forces going through each bracket as part of a system.
