xfce / Debian Remote Desktop

This is hopefully something wicked simple that I am missing. Basically, I want to do Remote Desktop for my Debian box that is currently hooked to my tv. I have vnc4server on it, and I can get that working. However, that always starts a new screen. I was display :0 shared.

Is this accomplish-able through vnc4server? Or what is another package I could use for this? I did apt-cache search desktop | grep -i remote, but I am not seeing anything terribly useful looking. And I am using xfce.

Maybe tightvnc or X11vnc (I have used that).

Use x11vnc - that is designed to share your already existing display.
