An alternative would be to create a group with the members you want to grant access and the make it so only they can see it

domos123 is correct. It's probably the best way to restrict a forum because anyone access that particular forum if they have the password which can be easily spread to other members. Here is a tutorial on creating restricted forums using groups: http://help.forumotion.com/t38399-restricted-forums
