The dns hijack would suffer from an ip change also, would it not? With
iptables you would be redirecting just the destination ports for the
activation service, not all the traffic bound for activation.laptop.org,
as with the dns trick. 

What iptables command did you try? I was thinking of something
-A PREROUTING -i ! eth0 -p tcp --dport <port> -d -j DNAT
--to-destination <ip of your box>
