This looks like it might be a mysql mis-configuration.
Search your my.cnf or the files in my.cnf.d for 'bind-address'
and comment out that line. Restart mysqld. Test.

If you have no bind-address set, then mysql listens ONLY to localhost.
If you have bind-address= then mysql listens to any network.

If you have bind-address= then *this* mysql instance will 
only accept connections from that IP.
In BE/FE setups, works fine.
If you have a remote front end, the mysql *CLIENT* must be told to 
connect to the mysql server using the server's address.

Not sure from this thread whether yours is a BE/FE or remote FE setup.
