My approach would be to use a dynamic host service like dyndns.com.
I setup a remote1.homedns.org with a cname in my zone:
remote.abc.com 3600 in cname remote1.homedns.org
And use a dynamic dns client on the laptop. Then you don't even care
what OS is on the laptop, just use the proper client for the OS on it.
