#185000 - Can you show a schematic?
Responding to: ???'s previous message
Can you show some kind of schematic or sketch of what you are intending to hook up?

There are quite a number of details that you have not specified that will need to be defined so that we can give you some guidance. A schematic of the circuit surrounding the opto-coupler, its input sources, its output loads, and power supply / ground conections would go a long way toward defining those details.

Also are you sure you want to use a 4N35? There are much better opto couplers these days that have much higher current transfer ratio. These better type couplers would make driving by the parallel port bits much more practical.
