I managed to figure the issue of **authentication** and it's really

accepting the user :-)

Running the suggested debug commands on the switch it is claiming:

"authorization failed"

"accounting failed"

mab failure due to 'dead server'

I took the liberty of changing the Tunnel-Private-Group-Id to 20 since
I have vlan 1 and 20 configured on the switch I am using in the hope
that the laptop would get a DHCP address from the DHCP server
configured on the switch, however I think due to the above errors
there is something additional which needs to be done.
