relaying email in exchange 2013

I am running exchange 2013 and I've setup a receive connector to relay email (text messages) from my PRTG server, but it keeps on failing.

Not sure what I'm doing wrong.  I've read many articles online and it's pretty easy to setup a receive connector, but it keeps failing.
Here's one in particular I've followed with no success.

Any ideas?

Thanks for the response, I found a work around as I've spent so much time.

Just adding a note here, if you want full anonymous relay, you can set up a secondary receive connector in Exchange, then configure it to use Externally Secured authentication.
