Thank you.I hadn't thought about the "satisfy all" bit.I was looking up the 
documentation for mod_auth as the gentleman earlier suggested (thank you). 
Unfortunately I have another question, that I ahve not been able to find any 
documentation which seuggest a solution. The computer I want to use this on 
is stationery and has it's own IP address. The computers IP is 
In my htaccess file I have :

Order Deny,Allow
Allow from
Deny from All

The strange thing is that retsicting by IP adressing only works if I use
Order Deny,Allow
Allow from 137.43.
Deny from All

which allows every computer whose IP address starts with Allow from see the page that I want to hide. If I use the full IP address I 
get a 403 error when I try to access the "hidden" page.

Any suggestions ?
