I'd suggest to try it with PAP/CHAP first and once you get it working
add extra complexity such as EAP.

If you get PAP/CHAP errors simply add the username and password to
/etc/ppp/pap-secrets or chap-secrets respectively. If you are using
a domain you can add something like "\\DOMAINNAME\username". Or disable
the option "Include Windows logon domain".

OK, just checking if there was a firewall blocking packets. Did you have
any luck disabling (MPPE) encryption, (MPPC) compression or LCP extensions?
