Can an IPSec VPN be established over an OpenVPN session?

Last Modified: 2015-06-23
For testing purposes, and not having access to public IP addresses on both sides, I am curious as to whether it is possible to run IPsec over an OpenVPN tunnel.

IPsec using Cisco routers or ASA Firewalls, and OpenVPN using pfSense machines.
