  No, it works the way it's documented to work.  The default_eap_type is what the server *suggests* that the client use.

  If you read the debug output, you would see that the client sends a NAK to that request, and instead asks for a different EAP type.

  But even then, default_eap_type applies to *EAP*.  It doesn't apply to PAP or MSCHAPv2.

  Generally, yes.  Why?  Ask Apple.  We didn't write iOS.

  Generally, no.  Why?  Ask Apple.  We didn't write iOS.

  Why are you asking us that question?  We didn't write iOS.
