ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host

Via an admin panel I can access the logs and I see:

Mar  8 20:32:10 vmi11458 sshd[2334]: Set /proc/self/oom_adj to 0
Mar  8 20:32:10 vmi11458 sshd[2334]: refused connect from 82.xxx.xxx.xxx (82.xxx.xxx.xxx)

I've stopped the DenyHosts service. But I still cannot log in. How can I solve this?
