No, right now the OpenVPN connection to its peer, i.e. the link layer must be
UDP or TCP version 4.  IPv6 is currently supported only at the tunnel layer
(i.e. IPv6 over IPv4) and only on OSes which either support TAP-style virtual
ethernet interfaces or TUN-style point-to-point interfaces with explicit IPv6
support.  IPv6 support at the link layer is planned for a future release,
probably 2.0.
