Now I want to put authentication on that page so that only login user and user with a certain user id can access that page from front end.No guest user will be able to access that page.How to implement that in EPIServer,In setting section of a page type there is a option access role but it is not working. Still anonymous user are able to access that page. What is the option to put restriction on that page .Please share link of tutorial.

You don't have to change anything in web.config. EPiServer has built-in support for access rights for content. You can read about it in the editor manual here|Setting%20access%20rights|_____0

Yes. If you remove the read access for certain groups or users, they won't be able to see the page.
