Same problem here.
But I think the PaperUI shows the state wrong. “Online” in the PaperUI obviously means, the ‘thing’ is present. It has nothing to do with the real network state, which can be expressed by an item.
Thanks for your fast answer. I just tried but without the double quotes, Thing is not created and I had errors in the log tail.
I also try with the double quote just for the IP address. Thing is created but the Item still always online.
I can confirm this strange behaviour in my Windows 8.1 environment. That is why I stopped using the Network Binding and returned to the old OH 1.x Network Health Binding (which works correctly in a Windows environment).
I am not sure, but as several Linux users report that it is working well on their systems I assume it might be Windows related. It was working for me on Windows until approximately mid 2017 but after some snapshot upgrade this strange behaviour started.
