Abstract: We consider the general case of a type IIA string compactified on a CalabiYau manifold which has a heterotic dual description. It is shown that the nonabelian gauge symmetries which can appear nonperturbatively in the type II string but which are understood perturbatively in the heterotic string are purely a result of stringstring duality in six dimensions. We illustrate this with some examples.
