You can try this http://help.forumotion.com/updates-and-new-features-f1/users-tuesday-tip-create-password-protected-forum-by-master-marc-t76762.htm but there isn't any other way since we don't have the real option made by the techs.

Or can i create a html page and make forum title direct link to that and lock the html page and then make it connect to the forum.

Would that Work?

Yes. But, you must create two HTML pages. ( one to redirect to the hidden HTML page )

Then, you can execute your plan, Very good
