A couple of options are to:

* Build a method into the the authentication / authorisation system  
that allows access for the validator (this could be a username and  
password in the query string, or something that works on the user  
agent and/or ip address of the client - I suggest you install a local  
copy of the validator on your network if you take this approach,  
otherwise you've built a very public back door into your system).

* Use the file upload feature of the validator to test your pages.  
The Firefox Web Developer Toolbar has a "Validate Local HTML" option  
which makes this a two click operation.
