Is there a way in IIS to enable basic authentication for remote requests while leaving the website open for local requests? I need external users to authenticate to access a site, but users on the local machine should not have to.

Why not set up one site bound to the Server's IP using Basic Authentication and a second site bound only to 127.0.0.1 configured to use Anonymous Authentication and pointing to the same content directories? This way users hitting the site from off he box get prompted becuase they are hitting the site using Basic and local requests hit the site on the loopback address using Anonymous?
