Limit access to files in cgi-bin

Hello,

I have a configuration file located at (example)
http://domain.com:82/cgi-bin/xxx.pm that can be accessed by anyone if
they
know the address/file location. Is there a way to limit access to this
location from outside the server? I mean so no one can access it if they
go
to that url?

I tried with rewrite but my main server must communicate with this file
located in cgi-bin and when rewrite is enabled the main server can’t
communicate with that file either. Please advise.

Thank you!

You could look at http://nginx.org/r/internal or, if that doesn’t
quite fit the bill, http://wiki.nginx.org/HttpAccessModule
