Is it possible to access content of a folder with a public link via REST API without authentication?  The Web UI does not require authentication to view the contents of a public link.

Attempt to access content via public link anonymously with REST API (no username/password in curl command) results in 401 error:

HTTP/1.1 401 Authorization Required
