Security Assist Page Not Validating allowing access

Setup register/login/logout using SA.
Registration works on live server and successfully adds records to the DB in the pcms2_users table, so I know the SQL connections are working.
However, when I try to login, I don't get a success message, but get redirected to my index page. I will PM/attach you a login and you can try it at http://outofchaos.net/gsc/www/login.php
After I attempt to the login, I try to access a page secured using the SA Manage Pages Access tool selecting 'Login Successful' as the access rule. It redirects to the failed login page ie index.php.
See http://outofchaos.net/gsc/www/admin.php
Attached are both files. Probably something really simple I'm not seeing, so I hope you can spot it.
Thank you.

Don't use the "Log in success" access rule on that page. That rule only works on the login page itself if you want to show a message rather than redirecting. You should have a rule like: "logged in to Users" or something to that effect that you can use on the restricted pages.

Cool - that worked. The actual rule that worked is 'Logged in to pcms2_users' referencing the Users' table in the DB. Thank you - I'm going to call you the 'Amazing Ray.'
