enabling OSPF on an ASA 5510 and 5505

I'm trying to set up OSPF on both of my ASA devices so that both of these boxes will participate in OSPF. I configured the ASA 5510 both the outside and the inside. In addition to that I added a default gateway. So what I want to do is manually add 2 additional static routes containing 10.x.x.x address scheme on this ASA 5510 box. What I'm trying to get to work is the ASA 5505 to learn these 2 static routes from the ASA 5510, but not learn the 2 networks that are directly connected to the ASA 5510 along with it's default gateway. I don't want the ASA 5505 to pick up these routes. The only routes I want the 5505 to learn are the 10.x.x.x that I will manually add to the ASA 5510 box. Does anyone have a suggestion what syntax I can use to test this scenario? These boxes are currently stand alone and are not connected on the network. Sorry for the confusion. I'm new to this. Keep in mind these boxes are configured as basic as you can get. There is not VPN tunnel or anything running on it at the moment. All I'm trying to do is test OSPF functionality to distribute specific routes but not the other networks to the other ASA device.

Hi there,
I believe that you've got to configure route redistribution for OSPF. Check out this document and let me know if that helps:
The master command in the ASA for this is router ospf. Configure its options to get what you need and I think you'll have it working in no time!
