Public access and restricted access are mutually exclusive. It also
makes nearly no difference what utility is used to access a URL pointing
to the text file you gave as an example, because they'll all send a HTTP
GET request, which is what the web server expects. Attempting to limit
access based on a User-Agent header or similar, to identify the client
type, is easily circumvented.
