Thanks Alan, 

I have read what you mentioned, still can't figure it out, I guess the
important part in the debug is:

ERROR: No Authenticate method (Auth-Type) found for the request: Rejecting
the user

I configured the MAC OS TTLS/CHAP (earlier I tried TTLS/EAP and still it
doesn't work)

I don't understand, the username and password are being supplied and read
in clear text and the binding is successful, why the reject ?
