Limit access to files in cgi-bin

I have a configuration file located at (example) 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!
