Typical install issues with OSX are firewalls or other security programs running in "highly" restrictive modes.  If you need help in diagnosing this open a support ticket with Akamai Technical Support providing a list of your running processes.  You can get this from Activity Monitor in Applications/Utilities and selecting File-Save.  Also, please include your OSX configuration - OSX version 10.X and browser used for the installation.
