Jforum SSO - restrict direct forum access => redirect to login page if not loged in please help!!!

I have a problem, if user tries to access the jforum directly without logging in then system should intercept, check if the session is active, if not then divert him/her to a login page, but mine isn't working that way, please help!!!

i use tomcat and my application is in the ROOT ( http://localhost:8080/ )
the jforum is installed in ( http://localhost:8080/jforum )

my cookie stores the username and if anyone is registered to my application and logs in then when he/she clicks on the forum link on my application it will check for the cookie and the username with the applications database and flys to jforum if the username doesn't exist the jforum is creating it its all fine

but now the problem is if the user is not loged in my application and bookmarks any page of the forum when he/she clicks on the bookmark it redirects directly to the forum desired page as an Anonymous user if he/she is not logged in right???, but i want it to check if the user is logged in to my application first (checking for the cookie and then checking the username from the cookie with the database) if the user is signed in then should display the desired page but if not it must be redirected to the login page.

please anyone help me with this i will be very grateful.

this is my global configuration file



this is how i create the cookie


please help thank you so much great forum!!!

If you don't want to allow users to browse the forum without being logged, an easy approach is to force a redirect from the html page. Open the file templates/default/header.htm, and there put a code like
