  That's a little hard to believe.  Most printers *don't* do EAP (i.e.
802.1X).  Just use it like a printer, without doing 802.1X.

  Let me repeat: the printer does not do 802.1X.  It does not do EAP.
It is lying to you.  There is *nothing* you can do to FreeRADIUS to make
it do EAP with a printer which doesn't implement EAP.

  Upgrade the printer firmware (if possible) to a version which does
EAP.  Or, disable 802.1X, and don't do authentication for the printer.
