You misunderstand.  In term mode C-c is the key prefix when in the
default character mode.  And you can toggle between character mode and
line mode easily with C-c C-j and C-c C-k.  When in line mode C-c C-j
then you don't need a prefix.  I use term quite a bit.

The problem with eshell and then using ssh within it to log onto a
remote machine is that it is always in line mode.

Try using TRAMP.  This is fully documented in the tramp manual.

  5.5.4 Running `eshell' on a remote host
  ---------------------------------------
  TRAMP is integrated into `eshell.el'.  That is, you can open an
  interactive shell on your remote host, and run commands there.

Try this:

  M-x eshell
  cd /address@hidden:

Or just remote if the user is the same:

  cd /remote:

I think that will do what you want.
