busybox command works, same command within script says permission denied

Hi All,

I have this problem with a script on my Unslung NSLU2. I use transmissionBT for torrent up/downloading, it works perfect. I start the Transmission-daemon (transmission bittorrent daemon) with start-stop-daemon so I don't have to use root as an user.

This works if I use the command in the terminal (busybox). Everything works fine then.
But when I put the same command line in a script in the init.d dir then the same command line says Permission denied.

The script has been chmod'ed so it has all permission. what's going wrong? Why does a command function different from the shell and the script?

Please help,

Could you please post what command you enter into the terminal, and your script?

thank you,

Oh Sorry!

Here's the line:

start-stop-daemon -S -c trans:everyone -b -x /opt/bin/transmission-daemon -- -a *.*.*.* -g /trans/.config/transmission-daemon -w /public/

trans is the username, everyone the group.
-g argument tell transmission where the config files are and -w tells transmission to write the downloaded files to public.

So if I paste this line in my terminal it works perfect. If I put it in a script is says permission denied to use /trans/.config/transmission-daemon directory.

What I am I doing wrong?
