tester4 ?   well, tester4 doesnt appear in your users file and thus has no VLAN etc defined...... thats whhy that isnt working for
you. the server isnt magical.

well, keep working at it - get some more 802.1X experience....but the client itself will need the  CA of the RADIUS server as well as the client
cert to present to the server  (the server will send through the server cert itself if used so no need for client to hold that).   if you dont see
any output at all from  radiusd -X  (after the 'Ready to Process requests....' line)  then either the 802.1X isnt configured
correctly on the NAS - and therefore the client isnt challenged for 802.1X or the client isnt configured correctly.

start with basic the TLS EAP 802.1X stuff locally on the radius server with eg eapol_test before you involve network kit/NAS/remote clients etc
