Send/Receive connector setup in 2 member Exchange 2010 DAG

Hello Experts - I need a little guidance on proper setup of send/receive connectors on a two member DAG.  I have two exchange servers, one at my primary office and another connected via VPN at a datacenter for failover.  In front of each is a websense email filter doing content filtering.  We're going to be bringing the second Websense server online this weekend and I want both Exchange servers to be able to send and receive email from both Websense servers.  MX records are already setup and we can receive mail at both locations.  Here is my config in screenshots, please let me know if this looks right:

Source Server
Network tab
10.35.208.x is on my local LAN and the other subnet is the second DAG member over at the datacenter.  Thanks in advance for any advice, please let me know if I need to include further info.

Hello,

I'm assuming you have the HT role installed on the DAG members. If that is the case, the way you have the connector setup, the local HT will always be used (unless it is down) and the connection will be load balanced between the two smarthosts. If one smarthost is down, the other will be used. If that is what you want, you are all set.
