As a starter, you could add the -v option which will display some of the negotiation over how authentication is proceeding.
Secondly - are you trying to get it to authenticate without using a password? If so, does the server allow that? Is the server setup correctly with the public key in place so this works from a simple sftp client using the keys from your call line?
