997 ways (Posted on 2014-06-14) Difficulty: 3 of 5

A recent puzzle asked for the smallest number that can be written as the difference of 2 squares in 4 ways - very interesting but not that challenging.

What is the smallest number that can be written as the (positive) difference of 2 squares in exactly 997 ways?
