Trouble Binding Philips Hue Bridge

Hi All,
I’ve been trying to bind my Philips Hue Bridge to OpenHAB and have had no luck. I don’t know much about coding or writing script but I believe I’ve followed the instructions to the T. I’ve added the ,jar file to the addon folder. I’ve changed the info in the openhab.cfg file:


I was even able to get the randomly generated username from the Hue API and insert it as the secret.

When I start up the server I get no mention of Hue. When looking through the debug log the only mention of Hue is:

17:13:23.450 [DEBUG] [.o.b.hue.internal.HueActivator:30 ] - Hue binding has been started.

But if I click the single switch I’ve created thus far on the sitemap I get:

2016-07-29 17:26:31.447 [WARN ] [inding.hue.internal.HueBinding] - Hue binding skipped command because no Hue bridge is connected.

It’s almost as if the bridge is non existent to my PC.

I’ve also noticed none of the other bindings I’ve put in are showing up on the server, but first things first.

Thanks in advance for your help!!
