Are there any self hosted alternatives to services like Hamachi and LogMeIn or Teamviewer?

If you're specifically referring to the fact that these services get around NAT by acting as a directory/junction box, then any VPN is an alternative. OpenVPN is an example that will provide all the infrastructure for secure networking. Once connected, you can use remote desktop, vnc, xwindows, etc to do remote control.
