Does this imply that you have the first computer (192.168.1.100) working?
If so double-check:

1) Port forwarding
2) That the VNC server on 192.168.1.102 is listening on display 1
3) That your IP address hasn't changed since you go the "64.130.xxx.xxx"
number

As far as the viewer is concerned, as long as you are not behind a firewall
that blocks outgoing connections you shouldn't have to worry about it.

Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once
