How to force login before posting in forums?

Optional 'thank-you' note:
Sorry but I am finding the security settings not very clear at all.
I wish to force users to log-in in order to post a new message or a reply. I have tried doing the following in the Admin Control Panel:
1. Under "Groups" click on "Security/Permissions" for the "General" group.
2. The following settings:
Is Administrator = No.
Categories = Allow All (still not sure what this actually does)
Forums = Allow All (this allows the user to participate in all forums, right?)
Anonymous Posts = I have selected the forums (ie. I do NOT have "Allow All") because the instructions say "Deny anonymous posts" so I have selected the forums which I wish to deny posting to.
But that does not work.
This 'allow all' logic is really confusing in the security settings. Could somebody please enlighten me? Thank you very much,
