Do you mean a domaon controller not a GC (global catalog)?

You can go into the security logs in event viewer and look for the log on and log off events.

Open ComputerManagement and go to SharedFolders:Sessions.  That will show you who/what computers have an open connection to your server...

It's a bit more cryptic, but you could also open a command prompt and issue:
netstat -ano

and view the actual TCP & UDP connections open/time-wait on your server.

the local clients should be contacting the local DC as long as it was set up in sites and services correctly.
You created a new site then added that DC to the site?
