Var extip in never gets populated? #2056

Code in question:

The cURL command appears to be incorrect as the variable extip is always going to be null - the command is directing the cURL output to file and any errors to /dev/null. Likewise if the command exit code is a failure code then it either echos the file location, or x.x.x.x if the file doesn't exist.

This doesn't seem correct given the variable usage, but I'm struggling to understand why a temporary file was used. Is there something I'm missing, or can the use of a temporary file be removed and the error handling of the command made more descriptive?

(Thanks to Coldster#4940 which pointed out the oddity)
