Do you have a shell on server B? Or just scp and no shell access on server B?

comment Calling a script with ./bla.sh vs. . bla.sh
FWIW, not all shells will search cwd for sourced sripts. zsh (at least with the config I have) requires . ./cmd

Your question doesn't make sense. What do you mean by "target server" -- the machine where you're running the wget command? If you are downloading via http (and not https), then the security risks are inherent in the http protocol and there's nothing scp could do to change that.

And since OP wants to use the command to kill the process, pkill (with the same args) would be the most direct choice.
