Unable to connect to SonarCube from Eclipse

I am having issues while trying to bind SonarCube. I am using Eclispe Neon and SonarLint v5.0
After the username password screen, I get the “Configuration complete” popup with a Finish button.
On click of Finish button, nothing happens. Popup does not close and no bindings happen.
My issue is identical to
Not able to connect to sonarqube server using sonarlint version but that link refers to a bug in an older version.
Any insights into how to resolve this issue ?
