iptables and content filtering

Hi to all,

I have a web server behind a firewall on a linux/iptables box.
My firewall only allows certain IP addresses to get through to the web server.

I want to keep this feature on my firewall but allow any IP address to get through if that address wants to access a certain file on my web server (ex. //web_server_IP/a/directory/file.php)

Is this possible?

Not using iptables. You could run apcahe on 2 ports though and only make this one file available on the second port.
