Your configuration looks fine to me and seems to match with what is
described in the instructions for OS X.

This seems to show successfully started EAP-TTLS handshake. However, the
authentication server behavior on processing the first EAP-TTLS packet
from the peer is odd. It tries to start EAP-PEAP at that point which is
not allowed change at that point in EAP handshake.. Would you happen to
know which authentication server is used?
