If by RAS, you mean remote access, then MacOSX has plenty of them:
- ssh
- (direct) remote desktop client (MacOS 10.5; see in Finder)
- remote desktop per iChat (MacOS 10.5)

If by "actually running or not", you mean that a user could check then  
use: ps ax
If you mean that a program should check I am not sure. A shell script  
could use ps, fgrep and co to do that.
