Yes, you can. The only problem I have found with such setup is that
the session table inside the modems tends to time-out before the
VPN rekeys. This means on low traffic links (like at night?) the
VPN becomes very unrealiable if not kept alive.

Hint, another reason to have keep alive in VPN links active!!
