use CGI;
$cgi = new CGI;
$cookievalue = $cgi->cookie('cookiename');
if($cookievalue ne "thevalueyouwant") {
     print redirect('http://yoursite/login.aspx');
}

Hello,

 Thanks for your reply. It gives me following error:

CGI Error
The specified CGI application misbehaved by not returning a complete set of HTTP headers.

Where are you putting it in your the awstats.pl page.  It will need to be present before any header information is sent to the browser.
