  • Two things at play here

    1) Your log sequence numbers are not close enough to enable database mirroring. Take a recent log backup from your principal database and restore it on your mirror database using the WITH NORECOVERY option.

    2) If you do not have a DNS server, you need to provide a FQDN for your SQL Server machines using the hosts file. 

    Check out this article for a step-by-step instruction on how to configure database mirroring for workgroup computers or for computers in different Active Directory domains. You will need certificates to configure security between them.
