sftp is stuck

Hi, my servers were originally setup with public IPs and I am able to sftp from one to the other. However, upon setting them all to use private IP (they are on a private LAN now), I am unable to do sftp. Here's what I'm seeing. Upon hitting yes, it just stucks there until I press Ctrl-C. Any ideas?

[backup@backup ~]$ sftp root@

Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes

Does ssh work to connect to the servers instead of sftp? Did you try generating more verbose output o sftp/ssh? Did you check server's log to see if there's an error or something?
