Cannot send Control-Space

I use the character Control-Space in Emacs to set marks and select regions. When I type this character in Xshell3 or Xshell4 it only sends a space. When I view the Xshell log I see only spaces. When I tried the key mapping feature in Xshell4, typing Control-Space just brings me back to "None" - it ignores it.

Can I configure Xshell to send Control-Space characters?

Note that I can use Control-Space with no problems in Xstart when using xterm to open a terminal window.

Help would be appreciated.

Re: Cannot send Control-Space

Control - Space control character is not supported in the current release. But, you can use the Control + 2 instead for now. We will include this key combination in the future releases.

Thank you for using Xshell.
