Hi Guys,

They changed something on their side (didn't tell me what) and now it works.

Here was my original example where it would simply disconnect:
# sftp ''
Received disconnect from #IP ADDRESS# port 22:11: Application error
Authentication failed.
Couldn't read packet: Connection reset by peer

Here it is now asking for a password as it should:
# sftp ''
#BANNER#'s password:

Thank you everyone for you help working through this.

Your ' ' single quotes are superfluous as only the shell sees them, not sftp. Probably nothing needed to change on your end at all.
