Question redhat 7.3 setting up internet connection

hi, i just made the switch from windows server to redhat 7.3 becuase of email issues i was having with the windows server. during installation it asked for the internet connection properties, ip, dns server, gateway.. and i set it up the same exact way i had windows server. but now that it is finished and i'm using redhat and trying to setup a host and all that, for some reason it isnt connecting to the internet. i know it is connected to the network because i am able to ping its ip from another computer on the network. i guess my question is, how do i get to the internet properties so i can make sure it is setup correctly? & if it is setup correctly is there somthing i need to do to initiate the connection?
