You may be intending to use <Location>;  <Directory> is for an absolute 
filesystem path, and <Location> is for a URL.  I have a similar version 
working (mine allowing unauth for localhost, and require auth for others) 
using <Location>:

<Location /portal>
        AuthName        [Name]
        AuthType        Basic
        AuthUserFile    [htpasswd]
        Require         valid-user
        Order   allow,deny
        Allow from
        Satisfy         any
        Options -Indexes

I don't know if it even works for <Directory>.
