    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
