Automatic upload failed: could not connect to SFTP server at myserver.com (Auth fail)

I am using webstorm on a project since 2-3 weeks now. its on a remote server, and I m using the sftp option in webstorm. Whenever I  save a file it is auto saved at the server also.

Suddenyl since 5 mins I m getting the error -

Automatic upload failed: could not connect to SFTP server at myserver.com (Auth fail)

I tested the ssh connection to the server - it works
I tested the sftp connection through webstorm settings - its successful
Only when I make changes to a code file and save it, I get the error.

I am using ubuntu12 and webstorm evauation version.
I had the same problem on OSX 3 weeks ago.

It's recommended to contact support directly: advanced logging is required to check the problem
