After clicking "click here if the Admin Console did not launch automatically", a file called "admin_console_webstart.jnlp" will be saved automatically in Downloads folder, maybe it's not launched automatically after downloading, but you can go to Downloads folder and launch it manually.
It never downloads no matter how often I click it. Got a great tip from Philip Fernano on the FMExperts List - use Firefox instead of Safari. Opened right away. Love the irony.

Chrome has also worked for me before when safari has failed.
I would and do hate to admit how much time I wasted trying to get this to work with Safari.

I haven't trusted a "bundled with the OS" browser since IE4. Since then it's been finding the one that has the most compatibility with the things I need to do.
Chrome is my defacto "browsing" browser for daily internet use. Firefox I will use for when I need to run robust web applications, debug/test, or find something that for some odd reason doesn't work on chrome.
I had a year or two where Opera was my top choice as well, but that seemed to fall by the wayside once my personal testing showed that chrome was much faster for day-to-day.
it doesn't download to the "Downloads"folder but to another hidden folder. If you double click the file right in the download list in Safari it will launch. You can even drag it from there to the desktop and use it to logon in the server without using localhost:16000
