comment A search for integers which can be written as a sum of two squares in multiple ways
This strategy will work, combined with Eric's point that I don't need to factor each n, I need to GENERATE n progressively with new factors. This is the effectively the "spray" method. Thanks!

MJD, correct, but not efficient. Factoring is much more effort than enumerating, and this is going to be done for trillions of values. Factoring is useful if we want to test a single $n$ value, though.
