Exchange 2010 - where to set username/password for SMTP authentication

I am trying to set up my Exchange 2010 server to send emails, but am having no luck. My ISP is Comcast and I have a static IP, business class service. I just got off the phone with Comcast tech support who told me I need to set up a user name and password on the Comcast system to have it allow me to send emails, which I have now done. In Exchange 2003, there is a place to select the port and enter this user name and password in the SMTP connector, but I cannot find this in Exchange 2010.
I did use the Exchange Command Line tool to Set-OutgoingPort to 465 for the send connector I created in the Organization Hub Transport object, but not sure where to set the authorization info or the smtp.comcast.net info.

Not sure, it does show how to update a hub transport to set port, but does not show how to create an outgoing mail connector, only Receive connector details.

If you run the New Send Connector wizard, which is in Org Config, Hub Transport, it will ask you if the Smart Host requires Authentication, which is when you enter the details you have set with your ISP.
