HTTP auth from outside + allow from local

Been a while but have a few scripts that need to hit a website that's local to that network, but also a public site. Currently there is an .htaccess in that folder with this lockdown;

AuthType Basic
AuthName "Restricated"

Require valid-user

Now, can I break that somehow and say (here is my english translation)

AuthType Basic
AuthName "Restricted"
Require valid-user

Allow from all

Right now I try to curl from a local (or any) machine, this is what comes back;

<h1>Authentication required!</h1>
This server could not verify that you are authorized to access
the URL "/".
You either supplied the wrong credentials (e.g., bad password), or your browser doesn't understand how to supply the credentials required.

So what's the easiest way around this to allow the local to hit the site... thanks.

Sorry, was actually easier than I though (can I thank myself)

But just so anyone else needs it (can't believe I actually didn't read enough, but it was this simple)

Order deny,allow
Deny from all
AuthName "Restricted"
AuthUserFile /dev/null (were using a perl auth module which is why this was put here like this)
AuthType Basic
Require valid-user
Allow from myip
Satisfy Any
