Numbers n such that A007406[n] is prime.
Some of the larger entries may only correspond to probable primes.
A007406[n] are the Wolstenholme numbers: numerator of Sum 1/k^2, k = 1..n. Primes in A007406[n] are listed in A123751[n] = A007406[a(n)] = {5,266681,40799043101,86364397717734821,...}.
For prime p>3, Wolstenholme's theorem says that p divides A007406(p1). Hence n+1 cannot be prime for any n>2 in this sequence.  12 more terms from T. D. Noe, Nov 11 2005
No other n<50000. All n<=1406 yield provable primes.  T. D. Noe, Mar 08 2006

EXAMPLE

A007406[n] begins {1, 5, 49, 205, 5269, 5369, 266681, 1077749, 9778141,...}.
Thus a(1) = 2 because A007406[2] = 5 is prime but A007406[1] = 1 is not prime.
a(2) = 7 because A007406[7] = 266681 is prime but all A007406[k] are composite for 2 < k < 7.
