OK. But I´m trying to use peap to make an encrypted tunnel validating the server certificate and then I want to authenticate the clients whith EAP-TLS using client/server certificate. The TLS tunnel is working fine, but the second part of EAP-TLS authentication not.

So .... in the peap section in the eap.conf, what I´ve to configure for default eap type? Is tls ? If I configure tls, I´ve to create a tls section in the peap section or the tls section of the eap.conf is enough. I´ve attached my eap.conf file.

Thank´s !!
