Network error. Software caused connection abort

I was able to connect to my server earlier using WinSCP. But today all of a sudden I am unable to connect. I get an error saying "Network error. Software caused connection abort". I tried troubleshooting by changing the File Protocols from SFTP to SCP and by making changes in the Keepalives section as mentioned on the website. However the problem still persists. I am able to connect from the same machine using xftp. I checked with my ISP and they said that there's no changes in firewall or other setting from their side. I have attached the log file generated. Kindly help!
