You need to specify rightauth2=eap-mschapv2, so strongSwan is configured correctly to accept
eap authentication using mschapv2 in round 2.
You also lack the eap-mschapv2 modules, that you need for eap-mschapv2.
Install it via your package manager or, if you built strongSwan yourself, configure the strongSwan sources with --enable-eap-mschapv2,
"make uninstall" "make clean" "make" and "make install".
Also, please make sure you send your answer to all parties involved, not just me.
