First of all, what is s? Second of all, it seems you made a typo somewhere because two legs have the same length, and there are no Pythagorean triples like that. Third of all, why haven't you shown any attempt/work?

Edit: Seems to work out if we write instead

$\displaystyle (m, \left(\frac{m}{2}\right)^2-1, \left(\frac{m}{2}\right)^2+1)$ for m even, then just plug in m=4,6,8,...
