After playing around with wget on a Ubuntu 16.04.6 LTS system I found that:
wget -d on it's own sends User-Agent: Wget/1.17.1 (linux-gnu) which fails.
On another system wget sends User-Agent: Wget/1.18 (linux-gnu) which works.
Changing the user agent with wget -d -U 'Wget/1.18.1 (linux-gnu)' works.
As does wget -d -U 'Wget/1.17 (linux-gnu)'

So it appears that factordb only rejects one case. But don't ask me why.

Nb The -d is to get debug output. It should not have any effect on whether the connection works.
