Thats something that may be hard depending on how do you want it to work. You can't realy easily check if there is server running (What are you doing that for). Just make button (with name for eg: HOST) then Open level with ?Listen parameter. There can't be 2 listen servers on one game client. If somebody launcher separate dedicated then there is not problem right? If somebody launched dedicated this person know what's doing.
If you realy need to check if there is server running have fun with
It's working perfecly for me (Code above translates domain into IP, you will need to find way how to check if there is server running)
Hope that helps.
