I took networking classes last year. Can confirm that basically 80% of the students weren’t (and probably still aren’t) able to create a simple user account from a Linux terminal. https://t.co/HDH5Llnmlb

This isn’t, generally, a networking skill so that’s not too surprising. I know tons of networking people who have never used Linux.
However, the general point is taken and I agree.
useradd usernamehere is how you add a user at the CLI in Linux, by the way. There are a whole assload of switches you can use, too, if you are so inclined.
man useradd will tell you what they are.
In a networking class, it’s much more likely you’d need to add a user to a Cisco device however, so for that you’d do something like:
username funkyrabbit privilege 15 secret mydamnpassword
Which would be far more relevant to know than the above Linux plaint and it’s dissimilar enough that knowing how to do it in Linux tells you nearly nothing relevant.
