I wouldn't worry much about the proxy server reference... Usually unless
you created the proxy server settings yourself there isn't one, so it
wouldn't apply to you. That part of the error message is generic and shows
up whether there is a proxy server or not.
It can be confusing but you need to keep straight what is meant by
"connection" in those types of messages. Your always-on physical connection
to the internet provider is one kind of connection but not what it's talking
about here. It's the communications over that physical internet connection
by the software you happen to be using that's what this error is about. In
this case Media Player is telling you that it cannot connect to (communicate
with) the site it needs to on the internet. There could be a number of
reasons why. Check in the Media player options under the Privacy tab to make
sure it has been allowed to download or check usage rights. Your security
software (firewall, script/popup/cookie/spyware blocking, etc.) could be
blocking Media Player from connecting to the internet, or it could be
blocking a script that tries to run the verification process through Media
Player. Temporarily disable those security functions, one at a time, until
the error stops and the verification process succeeds.

I downloaded my version of Harry Potter 5 that comes with the movie, but it
says that it needs to connect to the internet to verify that its legal.
though im always connected to the interent, media player says that it is
able to connect and tells me to do check something with my proxy server. I
dont know what that is or means. What should I do?
