How do I determine which vnc server is running

How do I determine which vnc server is running on my linux box ? (debian etch, kde)

I tried "ps aux | grep vnc" without result.

Whatever the server is, it isn't very reliable; I would like to identify it in order to replace it.

I am accessing the linux box from mswindows XP over a lan using UltraVNC.

use a package manager like kpackage, Synaptic, Smart...etc... Do a search for VNC in it and you will see what vnc software you have installed and available.

Uninstall/install only what you want.

That way you'll know what is used.
