Mouse without Borders



Setup (Video on CNET)

  1. After install Mouse without Borders, you will see a Setup dialog. You can also bring up this dialog anytime by clicking on the Mouse without Borders system tray icon on the taskbar.

  2. In the first machine, click NO on the first dialog. It will brings you to the second dialog where you see the security code and machine name. Keep the dialog open and go to the second machine.

  3. In the second machine, click YES to the first dialog then enter the information that you got from the first machine.

  4. Click LINK to link the two machines, after the machines get connected you can simply move the mouse cursor from one machine to the other, keyboard input follows your mouse cursor to the other machine as well.

  5. After setting up your machines, you can bring up the Settings form by clicking on Mouse without Borders system tray icon or using the hot key Ctrl+Alt+M. Here you can drag/drop machine thumbnails to setup machine position and change other options



What to do when getting the "Timed out" error

  • Make sure your machines are networked and can see each other. You can use the ping command to test the connection from one machine to the other.

  • Verify that you type the machine name correctly.

  • You may want to try out with a wired connection if your wireless connection is too weak.

  • Make sure your firewall does not block the application. You can add the application to your firewall exception list. The app uses port 15101 and 15100 by default.

Top items to go over to troubleshoot Mouse without Borders:

  1. Run the same, latest version in all machines. The version information can be seen on the About box.

  2. Use TCP protocol. (an option on the Settings form).

  3. Bind to the right network interface if the machine has multiple connections.

  4. Double check firewall/network connection. The app must be allowed through firewall.

  5. Connect all machines/devices to the same network/domain.

  6. Review all options on the Settings form. Note that there are three Tabs on the Settings form.

Known issues

  • Copy/Paste between machines only works with a single file and the size limit is 100MB.

  • Drag/Drop between machines works with single file only and it does not work with network file.

  • Copy/Paste, Drag/Drop do not work with folder and multiple files, the workaround is to zip them first.

  • If the host machine has a full-screen focused Remote Desktop/virtual machine window (or some kind of simulator window), the keyboard might not follow the mouse to the slaver machine. The workaround is to switch the focus to another window first.

  • In Windows 8, the mouse pointer might be invisible if there is no physical mouse attached to the machine.

  • Sometimes the selective screen capture (Ctrl+Shift+S) might stop working, the workaround is to temporarily switch to the Logon screen by hitting Ctrl+Alt+Del then hit Esc.
