When I run emacs on an ssh session to a Linux box via, it ignores Ctrl + / key combo (undo). How to stop this?

This is part of the reason I don't use anymore and use rxvt under Xquartz. You'll need a way to either modify the way handles ctrl/meta character (this question has a solution for that), or use an alternate term application.
