As the web part settings are stored per user, this is not possible in an anonymous context.

thanx Andy.. you mean anonymous user can not change web part settings. – Ashish Dubey Feb 8 '11 at 7:43
Yes. As the settings are stored per user, and you don't know who the user is, you can't store the settings - so the anonymous user can't change them. – Andy Burns Feb 9 '11 at 16:38
