Try and add the path to your erlang module:

erl -config /...../xxx/inets -pa /where/my-code/is -s my

Yes, especially if you are using the: -boot start_sasl
switch.

In my.erl you probably have something like:

start() ->
        spawn(?MODULE, init, []).

init() ->
        application:start(inets),
        %% more init stuff here... ?
        loop().

loop() ->
        %% A receive-loop here....
        receive
          Msg ->
            io:format("loop got: ~p~n",[Msg]),
            loop()
        end.
