I am trying to mount 'mouse without borders on my laptop. It asks for the IP address.

I am using 'Elementary OS' and trying to use 'mouse without borders' on the laptop. The desktop is win7 the laptop is Elementary. The program asks for the IP address of the laptop. How do I find this?

You should try Synergy, which works on Linux and is free and open source.

Mouse Without Borders from Microsoft is Windows-only, non-free and closed source.
