Invalid authentication with HAOS

Have rhasspy 2.5.11 and HA 2022.7.5 (OS 8.2) in docker. each separately seem to be working appropriately. but whenever i try to send an event to HA, i get a login attempt failed error, log entry below.

Login attempt or request with invalid authentication from ( (Python/3.7 aiohttp/3.7.4)

i have filled in the HA url (, the long-lived access token, and API password. Any ideas as to how to figure this out? i’ve tried resetting the password and creating new tokens with no luck.
