I do not have a firewall active on this computer and running Wireshark, 
I can see the the RADIUS request frames coming in from the client on my 
LAN as they correspond to the three requests before it gives up:

6508    13.018560775 RADIUS    126    
Access-Request id=111
7900    18.026087338    RADIUS 126    
Access-Request id=111, Duplicate Request
9210    23.042855784    RADIUS  126   
  Access-Request id=111, Duplicate Request

Hence I suspect that the issue may be with the RADIUS server 
configuration, rather than with my network setup - is that suspicion wrong?
