comment How to download latest version of cmake using tar xzf?
If you're wondering what the three commands do: configure sets up the environment based on the details of your computer (for instance, based on what libraries are present); make compiles the program; sudo make install puts the compiled binaries in the proper places.

comment What steps to add a user to a system without using useradd/adduser?
I think the text quoted from the link is just there to make the point that setting a password may not be a good idea for dummy accounts: when creating a dummy account, it's still generally easier to use useradd (not necessarily adduser, which automatically does a bunch of stuff which probably isn't needed for dummy users). That said, it's still nice to know what's being done internally, because that can help with various administrative tasks.

You shouldn't be allowing ssh login as root unless absolutely necessary. If you do allow login as root, change it to be without-password (requiring an ssh key to login). Otherwise, you open yourself up to people trying to bruteforce the password.

Does AndFTPFree support SFTP? If so, that works similarly to SCP.

Do you mean that you're using the phone and trying to put something on your PC, or are you on a third machine (like a work PC)? Where would you have been running the SSH command from?
