http://24.73.89.101:5900 will never work, it is the RFB port.
http://24.73.89.101:5800 should work, though.

On the 192.168.0.100 machine, go to http://www.gotomyvnc.com , verify the
button does say "Run Check Now on '24.73.89.101'".  Then hit the button
and tell us the results.

If it has a different address than 24.73.89.101, either your IP changed
(and that is why you are getting connection refused), you have another
firewall in the way, or something is still not right with your port
forwarding on the D-Link.
