Use the following command to accomplish this. You need to be cognizant about this setting though. If you do not add it correctly then it will overwrite any IP's you have in your list already. Below is a script that will accomplish this ADDING addtional IP's to the list without overwriting existing ones.

$RecvConn = Get-ReceiveConnector -Identity "Servername\receiveConnectorname"
Get-Content "c:\YourTXThere.txt" | foreach {$RecvConn.RemoteIPRanges += "$_"}
Set-ReceiveConnector -Identity "Servername\receiveConnectorname" -RemoteIPRanges $RecvConn.RemoteIPRanges
