What's in /etc/hosts and /etc/hostname? Did you reboot the system?

if you are doing that from inside the network
than you will look at the first device that is connected the to public IP / WAN IP
which is the router i say if you using one

if you are inside the network and wantting to use the DNS name to look at mysql server
than maybe set the DNS name to localhost IP
or use localhost than DNS.name.here.com.au
