How can I configure IIS 6 to allow access to a sub folder

  1. from our intranet without any authentication (well, the IP address needs to be checked but that's already working)
  2. from the internet only after authentication via Basic Auth?

Basically I'm looking for something like the Satisfy directive in Apache httpd.

I don't believe IIS 6 allows such level of control without a custom ISAPI filter of some sort. Like AuthentiX for example.
