How to change EAP type and inner authentication

I see, so it's always the supplicant to choose which one EAP method to use.
Any workaround to force the client to choose one specific method?
Thank you.

Of course. But you asked how you change it. As it's the client
that chooses what sort of EAP method to use, you therefore
configure it on the client.

As I said before, you configure it on the end user device. That
will switch the authentication to whatever you have configured.

Obviously you also have to configure FreeRADIUS for whichever
method you choose. The default install works for a wide range of
EAP methods by default. See what's in mods-enabled/eap.

But ultimately no matter how many methods you configure on
FreeRADIUS, it's the end device which chooses which one to use.
