Exchange 2010 - Setting up a receive connector for internal network scanners?

I am wondering what the best minimum way is to setup a receive connector for internal scanners on the network to use for relay, in order to e-mail PDF's/Images from the scanner to internal users' e-mail addresses.    
Do you just create an "Internal" receive connector, configure for anonymous access, and specify the IP/IP-range/subnet of the "allowed" network scanners?    
Do you need configure TLS in the receive connector?        
I get "login error" from scanner trying to scan but there aren't any credentials set anywhere, so I'm not sure if it's a scanner issue or an Exchange receive-connector issue.          

On one of my receive connectors, I believe it's configured properly, but I'm getting event log:    

Microsoft Exchange could not find a certificate that contains the domain name in the personal store on the local computer. Therefore, it is unable to support the STARTTLS SMTP verb for the connector relay with a FQDN parameter of If the connector's FQDN is not specified, the computer's FQDN is used. Verify the connector configuration and the installed certificates to make sure that there is a certificate with a domain name for that FQDN. If this certificate exists, run Enable-ExchangeCertificate -Services SMTP to make sure that the Microsoft Exchange Transport service has access to the certificate key.      

I don't want to have to add anything to a certificate if I can help it.

This is not recommended, you can create receive connector uncheck all authentication , anynomous user permission , scope : scanner IP Address, hope this will worked,

This helped me. Not the firewall part, as it wasn't needed. Just the receive connector/Exchange authentication issue was what I need to read to get the fix.

Any change on an Exchange Server's Receive Connectors should be followed by you restarting the Microsoft Exchange Transport Service (on the server you made the change on) before you try again.

1. On the server you are trying to send TO, check the properties of the Default receive connector and ensure 'Exchange Server authentication' is selected.

Exchange Server authentication

2. On the server you are trying to send TO, If you have a connector configured to 'relay' mail, make sure that the server(s) or network specified DOES NOT include the IP address of the server you cannot send FROM. Also Make sure on the authentication tab 'Exchange Server authentication' is NOT selected.
