    Another thing in case anyone else ever has this problem......make sure your phone stays on the home screen (just don't let it go to sleep). It'll also give that error when it's sleeping

    I had this problem today and I could not figure out what the problems was. I could connect through my Term vt100 application but I could not connect through WInSCP or Putty. I even tried to use a static ip but nothing.

    The weird thing though is that iTunes could see the phone but not WinSCP.

    I decided to reset the network settings. but then it would not connect to the internet. Further investigation revealed that it could not get an ip address from the router - it had it's own address but not one that would allow it to connect to the internet. So, I used a static ip and that allowed it to connect to the internet. Now, at this point I could connect with WinSCP but I could not do anything, the connection would break and back to square one.

    I decided to go back to DHCP and reboot the router.

    Success - problem solved
