You need to go into Routing > Advanced Routing mode and enable/define interface running OSPF. Specific to the configuration, you can check out this steps

Great, thanks.  So using the commands above and then the network command will add the advertisements?

If you use the CLI, yes. Otherwise, you'll have to navigate through the GUI.

Sonicwall CLI is almost identical to Cisco for some configurations.  Not sure about your model.

For the GUI, it should be pretty straightforward. Network->Routing. Then select Advanced Routing.  Finally enable it on the interfaces you want.

I found this and  the first command:

route ars-ospf is available, but do you know what it does?

I did enable ospf from the gui, although there is no place to advertise routes, or is that done under routing?

Once OSPF is enabled on the interface, it will automatically form adjacencies and advertise all OSPF networks.

OSPF needs to be entered on all the interface that are to be part of the OSPF area. Or you can have OSPF redistribute the connected networks into OSPF.

some of the interfaces don't have those networks is the issue; would enabling them on each interface fix this? Also how do I redistribute?

Yes.  That's the easiest way.

Also how do I redistribute?
On the OSPF configuration screen, there should be a checkbox for "Redistribute Connected".

Use of Redistribute Remote VPN Networks - Enables or disables the advertising of static (Policy Based Routing) routes into the RIP system.
