It could be that MySQL is only listening on localhost (127.0.0.1) and not your net IP. Check your network settings in your server config. Alternately, you can also do a
netstat -anp | grep mysql
As root and see where it is listening.

As you said earlier, it's not necessary to use dig to check the ip address.
Ping does the job.

PING photon (192.168.1.20) 56(84) bytes of data.
