Custom Auth and bbPress plugin

    Hi

    I have a wordpress(3.4.1) installation and I don’t use standard WordPress
    Authentication. I have my own login page(mylogin.php) where I capture the
    userid/password and then compare with values in my own user table.

    Now I am using BBPress plugin(2.2.2). I have created a page(askanexpert) in
    wordpress and inside that page I have put the BBPress shortcode [bbp-forum-index].
    Now from frontend when the user does login and go to forum(http://www.domainname.com/askanaexpert),
    bbpress forum is visible and all the topics are visible, but forum shows the message that

    “You must be logged in to create new topics.”

    I think it happens because BBPress is perhaps looking for some authenticated cookie which
    was not created due to my custom authentication.

    Is there a way to create the cookie from my custom authentication page, which
    bbpress will understand ?

    I can not get rid of my custom authentication. Is there a way to fix it, so that when user is
    logged in to wordpress site he/she can use the forum as regular logged in user without login again?

    I am fine to do some programming, but not sure which way to go.
