Description (partial)

On the authentication server we are able to see the client timing out or "Endpoint abandoned the session" log.
The controller reports EAPOL start, request / response but no further than that. 
In the packet capture, we are able to to see in capwap the EAP-PEAP request leaving controller / arriving AP, but when compared to the logs on the AP ( client traces) , there is no evidence on that packet. 
A loop is observed with the following logs :
