Question regarding eapclient

I mean EAP-MD5 client application, to send EAP messages to the server.
Initially I tried testing authentication, by sending RADIUS  request
and getting accept packets. which worked fine.
Now I am trying to send packets using EAP-MD5.
As per my knowledge, In addition to the radius request and response ,I think
I need to add EAP message attribute and message authenticator fields and
their TLVs in a  structure and use HMAC-MD5 to calculate message
authenticator field value.

Can you suggest me something on this? Is my approach correct?
