On the understanding (from above) that everything is working
except your perl code that is not setting the VLAN correctly, you
could try -

1. Remove everything related to the perl code, so the server
authenticates users correctly, but no VLAN is set.

2. Add something like

  update reply {
    Tunnel-Type := 13
    Tunnel-Medium-Type := 6
    Tunnel-Private-Group-Id := 999

  to the outer post-auth section.

3. Verify that the server a) works, and b) sends the above
attributes in the Access-Accept (check the debug output).

4. Only after all the above, replace the update reply {} with
rlm_perl, and work on that. At this stage you know that setting
the AVPs there works, so if it's broken it must be your perl code
or rlm_perl settings :-)
