I am looking for recommendations for a python based http server.  It
will need to server large files (several 100 meg) over a nonstandard
port (ie, not 80), preferably as fast as possible, but will not have
to handle a large number of requests.  I need basic authentication.

Will SimpleHTTPServer fill these needs?
