EAP-TLS *requires* a client cert. If you want to use EAP-TLS, you will
have to do something on the clients.
If you want to use PEAP or something, there are two things to consider -
the default eap type in eap.conf:
default_eap_type = peap
...and the default EAP type on MacOS.
PEAP & TTLS require the "tls" EAP type to be configured I think; I'm not
sure you can disable EAP-TLS, as this will break PEAP & TTLS. The best
you can do is change the default types.
If changing it on the server doesn't accomplish it, then I think you're
going to have to do some config on the clients.
