permission denied w/ SSHFS FC6

When I try to mount an directory via SSHFS I get this error from the following command...

sshfs /mnt/mountdir

fusermount: failed to open /dev/fuse: Permission denied

I've tried adding myself to the fuse group but, no go....

Anyone know what causes this?

I've never used ssh to do this, but I frequently mount from other machines. In order to do so, I have to put the address and permissions into /etc/exports on the machine containing the directory I want to mount on the external machine. I then have to run 'exportfs -ra' before attempting to do the mount.

In order to pull any of this off, I need to install (on Ubuntu) the nfs packages.

Don't know if that helps your situation or not...
