How can I get postfix to show me which IPs have been connecting to the SMTP server?

Postfix stores its log in /var/log/maillog (as configured by /etc/syslog.conf) If you want to see who's been connecting to you, try the command:

# grep postfix /var/log/maillog | grep disconnect | egrep -v "|192.168.1."

(adding to the last grep any other "autherized" networks)
