Unhappy VNC and SSH

Heyyyyy =]
I'm having trouble with my ssh tunnel.
I'm trying to run VNC through it, but I'm not sure how to make sure that it's actually running through the tunnel.
I can get ssh to run.
And I can get vnc to run,
But how do I make sure it's through the tunnel?
Is there a command?

Thanks =]]]]]]

I'm no networking expert, but what if you shut down SSH and then see if VNC still connects and runs?

If VNC still runs, then obviously it isn't using SSH.

Remote login through VNC is not through secured tunnel, but I heard that the latest version can definitely provide such function. Actually, in Linux, if your X-window is working, "SSH -X" can also pipe the graphics to your local host. Start your X-Window first, then you can use: ssh -X -l "user" "remote host ip", if you want, any application with GUI can be piped to your local host,like mozilla,...etc.
