Once setup what settings do I use on the client to send using this connector?

You do not have to make any settings change on the client to send using this connector.

But how does the client know to use that send connector?

The mail routing decision is taken by Hub Transport Role server in the environment. When client sends the mail, it will be submitted to a Mailbox Server, which transfers it to Hub Transport Server for routing. HT Server checks whether the recipient is internal or external. If the recepient is external, it uses the send connector created to send mail. If the recipient is internal, mail will be routed to the mailbox server which has the recipient mailbox. Client is not aware of any of these processes. It just submits the mail to mailbox server and further processing is done by mailbox server and hub transport server.

Following is an article which gives more info regarding this.
