I don't know how you can use SSH only between to systems with static IP but I suppose you can to configure it through iptables.
First of all sshd service must be running on both systems. You need also to check you ssh_config file in /etc/ssh folder. Be sure that you have this line disabled otherwise you'll not be able to connect to or from.

# PasswordAuthentication no

After you are sure ssh is running in order to connect you type in the console:

ssh username@ip

If you type just ssh ip then you will be connected as the user that you are logged in your system.

I hope you will find this information usefull.

Do you use any kind of firewall? Try also to ping the other system to see if it responds.

Is this 10.xx.xx.xx host across The Internet from you? if so it is behind a NAT and you can't directly access it unless the administrator of that network opens a port forward to the system for you.
