Currently, there's limited support for IPv6.

Point-to-point IPv6 tunnels are supported on OSes which have IPv6 TUN driver
support (this includes Linux and the BSDs).  IPv6 over TAP is always supported
as is any other protocol which can run over Ethernet.

When OpenVPN 2.0 is run in server mode, IPv6 is currently only supported in
TAP mode, not TUN mode (Server mode IPv6 TUN support will likely be added

The VPN carrier connection must currently use IPv4 endpoints, however there's
a patch which can be found in the openvpn-devel archives which adds IPv6
support.  This patch will probably be merged into the mainline post-2.0.
