You can use the Exchange Management Shell to view the configuration of an existing Foreign connector for a computer that has the Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Hub Transport server role installed.
A Foreign connector can only be installed on a computer running Exchange 2010 that has the Hub Transport server role installed. A Foreign connector uses a Drop directory to send messages to a local messaging server that doesn't use SMTP as its primary transport mechanism.
